Thanksgiving week is a great time of the year. It is also one of those times when consider what we are thankful for. I had the opportunity Monday to listen to several people share what they are thankful for, and I was totally blown away. One was a teenage girl who just accepted Jesus. She was so excited and grateful. Another was an elderly and gracious lady speaking to a group of young children talking about being grateful. And another was a man we met at church recently who loves serving but life has been very difficult for him as of late.
What is it that you are really thankful for this week? Name it. Share those things with others. Much of what we must be thankful for are things and truths that are not fleeting. They will be true till the end. There are plenty of situational or changing things we are grateful for, but God has put so much in our lives that we have to be thankful for.
Hold tight to, believe in and be thankful for the truth that God has given you!
Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.
Our great God not only keeps us from falling, but He is and has preparing our future with Him. Our human minds can’t comprehend the splendor and beauty of heaven. God is worthy of our praise. He is all powerful. All things came from Him, and He holds all things.
Those things are true and are things that will never change. Till the end they will be true, and we must be thankful for them. If God holds these things to be true, then how much greater and sweeter is the fact that God holds us and loves us? Till the end…it’s true!
