As we approach thanksgiving, writing like this from Joel Osteen remind me what’s really important. Too often, i am worried about my situation and I don’t thank God for what I am already blessed with. As we approach thanksgiving, I thank you lord for everything especially for my forger through the cross. Happy thanksgiving… PJSLB
Today, take time to reflect on and give thanks to God for all of His blessings in your life. Whether you are eating turkey, playing games with your family, watching football or visiting a friend, remember to take time to focus on God’s goodness. Count your blessings and notice all the grace, favor and love that God has given you. Psalm 95:2 says to “come before His presence with thanksgiving…shout joyfully to Him with psalms.”
No matter the circumstances in your life, give thanks and praise to God for all that He has done. Remember how good He is and that His love will endure forever. The Bible says that you show your love for God through your actions toward other people. Reach out to those around you this holiday season and share His love and forgiveness with them. You are blessed to be a blessing to others!
A Prayer for Today
“God, no matter what the circumstances, I always give thanks to You for the blessings in my life. Help me find the time to serve others during this busy season and, in doing so, draw closer to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
As I wake this morning, I am reminded just how big this day is for me. I could be getting news that will be life changing. I have been praying for things to go my way. I have been praying for favor. I have been praying for peace. At times, I find myself (for a split second) thinking of the worst case scenario. I do my best to “change the channel” but the seed of doubt has already been planted. This morning I find this scripture verse on my email. It is one that I needed to read today. Thank you lord, I leave all to you. I thank you for being the author of all. In Jesus name amen. PJSLB
Today is one of those days where I feel that “something great is going to happen this week.” Its a weird feeling. There are just times in your life that you hear the Holy Spirit speak a little more clearly and for me, today was one of those times. I dont know what will happen. I am at a good place right now and we all know that was not always the case. I love my job, my kids are thriving at school, my wife is awesome, and I even got the NFL Sunday ticket this year (though the Giants are 0-2 to start the season). It will be interesting to see what will take place this week.
Even if nothing “special” happens this week; just being able to have that moment with the Holy Spirit this week has already made this week awesome. Have a great week my brothers and sisters in Christ. Remember, we are the face of Christ on this side of heaven. PJSLB
