Let’s Be Thankful!
Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year. I really enjoy getting together with family, cooking the big holiday meals, and sitting down around the dinner table. I am thankful for all of these wonderful things each year, and my figure shows it! There are so many things to be thankful for each and every day. God blesses us abundantly. He sends us sunshine and the rain (Matthew 5:45). He sends us fruitful seasons (Acts 14:17). He blesses us with friends and family.
Consider this great passage and then be thankful for these wonderful spiritual blessings: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory” (Ephesians 1:3-12).
Are we thankful to God for all of these wonderful gifts? God bless you, and I love you.
