Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord.   1 Cor 15:57

Today, as we celebrate thanksgiving, may we be mindful of the foundation we have enabling us to, in everything give thanks.  For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning us.  The individual that loses sight of all he or she has been given in Christ, loses a thankful heart.  


Even when circumstances are pleasant, without the awareness of every good and perfect gift coming into our lives by the goodness of God, we would still be unthankful.  If we live in a realm of performance and works, our sense of being owed something diminishes thankfulness. 


On this Holiday, let us hold the awareness that it is because of the love of God and Jesus Christ’s obedience that our lives are richly and abundantly blessed.  For in Him, thanks be to God, we have victory that overcomes in every circumstance.  


David and I pray that the eyes of your understanding are enlightened to see the goodness of God abounding to you each and every day.


Happy Thanksgiving.
