Happy Thanksgiving

Happy thanksgiving to everyone!  I hope that reading these thoughts has been a blessing to you throughout the year.  As I tell folks, I’m always amazed when God uses them to speak to someone, they started off simply as a means to keep myself accountable. If I had do send out a daily devotional, it make sure that I spent some time each day reading the Word.

So, thanks for reading.

And may each of you have a Happy Thanksgiving.  I am thankful for you each.

Today, two quick thoughts on Thanksgiving.  First, one from our favorite writer CS Lewis –

We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is “good,” because is it good, if “bad” because it works in us patience, humility, and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country.

May, in each of our circumstances today, we give thanks.  For the good and the bad, as difficult as it may be. For in all things God is at work for our good and His glory (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28)

And from the book of Lamentations 3:22-24:

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”

Morning by morning, new mercies I see.  Great is God’s faithfulness.  Today, God really is faithful to us.  May we remember that, may we see that, and may we be thankful, today, and each day.

Happy Thanksgiving!
