“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness, come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God, it is he who made us, and we are his, we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise, give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good; his love endures forever, his faithfulness continues through all generations.” Psalm 100:1-5
All across our nation, Thanksgiving is a day that we set aside in order to do one thing…Be thankful!
Usually what goes along with it is lots of food, family and friends, laughter and fun, times of giving to others in need, maybe some football, or traditions that you share with loved ones. Sometimes, there is also loneliness, struggle or maybe deep loss. Feelings of hurt and painful circumstances that you’re still trying to hurdle over.
Whatever you’re facing this Thanksgiving Season, in the midst of all of it, may we remember again that God gives us the opportunity each and every day to give worship and thanks to Him. Every morning He gives us breath is His invitation to come joyfully into His Presence. He reminds us that He alone is God and we belong to Him. He assures us that His plans in our lives are for good, that His love covers us securely, and His faithfulness extends from generation to generation.
Psalm 100:4 reminds us, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.”
God has given us so many reasons to choose thankfulness and joy. That’s right! It’s a choice. So let’s set our intentions this Thanksgiving and every day to be thankful for God’s goodness and blessings over our lives.
Happy Thanksgiving & Many Blessings!
