Thank You Lord

In ALL things give thanks.

Thank you Lord for our family, there are many who have none.
Thank you Lord for our church, there are many who do not have one.
Thank you Lord for our food, there are many who go hungry.
Thank you Lord for our clothes, there are even little children who go barefoot.
Thank you Lord for our home, there are many who sleep in the streets.
Thank you Lord for our friends, there are those who have no one.
Thank you Lord for those we miss, because you blessed us with them for a time.
Thank you Lord for trials, they help us to appreciate our blessings and strengthen our faith.
Thank you Lord for Your Word, Your Mercy, Your Protection, Your Comfort, Your Provision, Your Guidance, and Your Peace.
Thank you Lord for all of the many blessings that we take for granted, and help me to be used by You for the furtherance of Your Will.
Thank you Lord, most of all for my salvation through your Son Jesus Christ who takes away all of our sins.
In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving! I think that we are all so blessed that we actually have to have a day just to focus on it and realize it. We all do a mighty lot of complaining and worrying about all sorts of things that we think matter, but in the end nothing really will matter except for our relationship with Jesus. Make sure you have one before it is too late. Also, realize that if you have a warm place to sleep, people who love you, and something to eat, and a place in someone’s prayers at night, you already have more than most people on this planet.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
