“The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals, and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang, “He is good; His love endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 5:13
There is so much to be thankful for, a simple blog could never cover the amount of love God has given us and our many blessings. On Thanksgiving, we give it up to the Lord. We thank Him and praise Him. HE is our CREATOR and SAVIOR.
I sometimes go days without thanking the Lord for all He has done. Even though I say this prayer every day:
Bless us, Oh Lord,
and these thy gifts which
we are about to receive from thy bounty,
through Christ, Our Lord.
I don’t always truly remember the deeper meaning. God has given us SO MANY gifts (not only that yummy turkey you’ll be eating hahaha) but our soul, family, friends, virtues, and life as well. One of my favorite verses when thinking about being thankful to God is the first part of Acts 17:28: “For in Him we live and move and exist.” We are alive because of all because of Christ. You were able to eat breakfast with your family, shower, watch a movie with your friend, play fetch with your dog- because He wills that you continue to live. It is the ultimate reason to show our gratitude.
Everday, proclaim His love and thank the Lord. Here, take 10 seconds to think about all the beautiful blessing you have to thank him for and simply pray.
10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1 “Thank you, God.”
This Thanksgiving, in the midst of turkey, pie, football, and parties, don’t forget to take some time treasuring God’s goodness to you. Thank him, praise him, and “let those delivered by the Lord speak out.” Even in the darkest of times, thank Him. He will be there to open the curtain for the light to shine through and to keep you company in the hardest of times. His love for us surpasses ALL. Use your every breath and every action to spread kindness.
“I will thank you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High” (Psalm 9:1-2, New Living Translation).
