~Thanksgiving~ Such a wonderful holiday. Families around the nation gather to share a meal and fellowship. Contrary to what most kids in the nation are taught growing up, the holiday of Thanksgiving is rooted in God’s Word. My prayer is that the heartbeat of my family on a daily basis would reflect the truth of the Word of God.
“It is good to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High” (Psalm 92:1)
“We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater.” (2 Thess. 1:3)
Thanksgiving day often causes much reflection on the goodness of God and His provision for my life. In fact, my wife, spent an entire week at her blog, Eternal Outlook [with Angela] espousing differing aspects of God’s provision in our family’s life. But ultimately, it is my prayer for myself, and all those who may read this blog, that we will be known as people of thanksgiving, because of how indebted we are to our Creator and Savior.
I want the heartbeat of my life (and my family’s) to be one that praises God with a heart of thanksgiving on a daily basis.
