“Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto Thy name: the upright shall dwell in Thy presence.”
We have entered November and this is what I call the “Thankful Month”! It’s the month of all thing cozy, festive, and(if you are like me?) flannel.? It’s also the month of Thanksgiving… my favorite holiday! We have so much to be thankful for, don’t we? God’s goodness and mercy fill me to overflowing over and again daily! I have been continually reminded of Psalm 92:1 these past few weeks where it says “It is a GOOD THING to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto Thy name, O Most High”! Giving thanks is a GOOD THING. I like that! :) At the end of Colossians 3:15 we are commanded to “BE ye THANKFUL” and we are told in Psalm 107:22 that our Thanksgiving is an offering/sacrifice to the Lord, “”And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare His works with rejoicing.” There is a verse in Psalm 119 that says, “Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.” I wonder how much more free of stress and grateful we would be if we intentionally stopped and verbally gave the Lord thanks for 7 blessings each day? I love how Philippians 4:6 commands us to be anxious for NOTHING but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication *WITH THANKSGIVING* to let our requests be made known unto God. And the promise if we do so? ?? The peace of God, which passeth ALL understanding(Phil 4:7)!!! So today I want to leave you with a challenge! Find a notebook and designate it your Thanksgiving Notebook. Each day of November write down at least 7 thanksgivings to the Lord! Big or small, God deserves thanks for them all. I think you will be amazed by His abundant blessings in your daily life! May we “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” These are my very random thoughts for this lovely Wednesday. May the Lord richly bless your day as you offer to Him the sacrifice of Thanksgiving! ❤️

“Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”
