Hope y’all had/are having a great Thanksgiving! Since it is Thanksgiving, I thought I would share some verses and thoughts about thankfulness and thanksgiving….
The Pilgrims had a lot of things they could have grieved about. Many died in the hard and cold winter before, and they were in the wilderness. But instead, they gave thanks for their blessings, such as their Indian friendship.
It can be super hard to be thankful, especially when times are bad. But there is always something to be thankful for. When I have had a really hard week, I can be thankful that God gave me trials that I could bear up with. When we hear about something really bad in the news, we can be thankful that God is in control! Again, it is hard to be thankful in an evil world! So, here are some things I am thankful for:
- My family
- Vacations to fun places
- Latin class
- Young Ladies for Christ
- My friends whom I meet every Sunday, and every Wednesday
- A roof over my head
- That God loves us and is in control of the world
And here are some verses that reminded me of how praiseworthy our God is:
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalm 100:4
“With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.”
1 Chronicles 16:34:
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
If you have a free moment, here is a thanksgiving hymn 🙂
So, have a happy Thanksgiving!!! Eat lots of turkey, stuffing, and remember why we are celebrating!
