Be Thankful

We had our traditional Thanksgiving Day meal on Wednesday this year. It has been pressing for our two married sons and their families to attend the festivities at the homes of both sets of parents so our youngest son, (number three is in China), suggested doing it a day early. It worked out great!

I wanted to share what God impressed me to pray as we returned thanks over the meal. We gave thanks to God for blessings of the past, things we are aware of but also things He has done for us that we may not have known about. We thanked God for blessings of the present, things He is working on now even though we may not be able to see any evidence of His hand at work in our lives in a particular area. And, we thanked God for blessings of the future, the things He has planned for us as we look to Him as our source of everything.

God was telling me to share with the family that, if we lean on Him, seek His ways, and ask for His help, He will respond. But...we may not always see the results or understand why something didn't work out like we wanted it to. That's where faith and trust comes in; even though we don't understand, we trust that God knows what He's done in the past, is doing in the present and will do in the future. "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name." Psalms 100:4

Amen.

A grateful heart is healthy, feels good.

God bless.
