Thanksgiving Thoughts, Part 1

 

In every thing give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

Thanksgiving day is just around the corner, and I would like to suggest 3 thoughts to encourage being thankful. 1) It’s good for yourself and your own emotional and psychological makeup. Try listing some things for which to give thanks. Dwell on those things. It’ll be good for you. If you have nothing to be thankful for, get saved! 2) It’s good for those around you. There aren’t too many people who like to be around a whining, complaining, ungrateful person. You’ll be much more of a blessing and witness to your family and friends if you put thankfulness into practice. 3) It’s good for the Name of Jesus Christ. Why? Because it’s God’s will.

Oh, one more thing. You’ll be the winner. How can that be? John 13:17, says, “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” Wanna be happy? Give thanks. It’s in God’s Holy Bible.

Life is a journey, not a home; a road, not a city of habitation; and the enjoyments and blessings we have are but little inns on the roadside of life, where we may be refreshed for a moment, that we may with new strength press on to the end - to the rest that remaineth for the people of God.
- Horatio Bonar

Blessed Be the Lord

We were lost, but we are found,
Dead, but now alive are we;
We were sore in bondage bound,
But our Jesus sets us free.

Strangers, and He takes us in,
Naked, and He becomes our dress,
Sick, and He from stain of sin
Cleanses with His righteousness.

Therefore, will we sing His praise
Who His lost ones hath restored,
Hearts and voices both shall raise
Allelujahs to the Lord.

John S. B. Monsell

When you cannot rejoice in feelings, circumstances or conditions, rejoice in the Lord.

---

Doth not all nature around me praise God? If I were silent, I should be an exception to the universe. Doth not the thunder praise Him as it rolls like drums in the march of the God of armies? Do not the mountains praise Him when the woods upon their summits wave in adoration? Doth not the lightning write His name in letters of fire? Hath not the whole earth a voice? And shall I, can I, silent be?
- C. H. Spurgeon
