As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus during this beautiful Thanksgiving season, it is all about GRATITUDE. In the last few days, I shared about making a list of things you’re grateful for. I shared about action for thanks always leads to giving (THANKSGIVING), and today it’s adding it all up. No matter how difficult the years may be, God has been FAITHFUL, and blessed us. There is nowhere in the Bible that it says that life will be easy!
Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
So, during this season, bring your fears, pains, sorrows, trials, and tribulations, and lift them up to the cross and PRAISE God. Focus on the light of Christ, not on the darkness, and you will find that you have a lot to be GRATEFUL for. This, too, SHALL pass, and we will experience, as a world and a nation, and in our personal lives, Emmanuel -GOD IS WITH US! No matter how we celebrate Thanksgiving, what is most important is that we give THANKS. Feel free to have a piece of pie before your meal in memory of my mother…it’s a great family tradition.
And thank you for being a friend and journeying with me in a complete surrender to our Lord!
