Thanksgiving can come any time of the year. We have a lot to be thankful for right now. In spite of the horrible 24 hour news cycle making everyone tense, nervous, and stressed out I suggest you take time today to count your blessings. On a personal note I want to thank everyone who has prayed with me for rain. We have had wonderful rains lately and I know several farmers who personally said how thankful they are. There are many places where drought is still holding communities in its grip. Keep praying. Yet, remember that the most important part of prayer is listening for the still small voice that guides you into right pathways. Listen.
Give thanks for the day, for the care of medical personnel, for teachers who are busy preparing for school, for people who care enough to buy school supplies and backpacks for needy kids, for those who are trying to help the depressed and suicidal people in our communities, and for your personal needs being met. We are not blessed so that we can sit back and just enjoy what we have. We are blessed so that we become a blessing to others. So live thankfully today. Let people know it – and let your face and body language show it.
Psalm 107:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
