Thanksgiving Thoughts

As you think about all your blessings this week, here are some words from Psalms to read and pray and thank God Almighty for all of them.

It is good to praise the Lordgratitude
and make music to your name, O Most High,
to proclaim your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
to the of music the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.
For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord;
I sing for joy at the works of your hands.
How great are your works, O Lord,
how profound your thoughts!  Psalm 92:1-5

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1

Praise the Lord, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion.
From Psalm 117

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.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.  Psalm 100

I hope all of you have a Thanksgiving filled with gratitude and praise for our Awesome, loving God.

Thanksgiving Day

By Dr. John Ed Mathison
Executive Director
John Ed Mathison Leadership Ministries

Thanksgiving is not a day on the calendar but rather an attitude towards life. I think it was Mark Twain who said we ought not to have a day of thanksgiving, but instead to have a day of grumbling. His point was that we should confine our grumbling to just one day and our thanksgiving to the other 364 days! Continue reading

Feeding The Multitude

This is a guest blog.

I’m grateful and fortunate to have met a fellow Christian blogger, Terra Newsome, who has a beautiful spirit and a hunger and thirst for God’s direction in her life. Those qualities are poignantly obvious in her writing.  I recently read Feeding The Multitude on her site and I wanted to share it with you. It touched my heart for the homeless, and I’m confident it will touch your hearts as well. I encourage you to visit her blog at Living Simply In Abundance.

Typically this is not like me to write a random post without the leading of the Holy Spirit but then again, this could be such doing and my Continue reading

They didn’t stuff themselves, then nap on the couch or prepare for Black Friday shopping.  They didn’t drone on about football.
