In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Well as many sit down to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, many will take the praise, honor, and glory from God. Giving thanks is a practice that should be perform daily and even on Thanksgiving, God still doesn’t get the forefront of praise. Regardless of what and who you believe in, God brought you to this point of the year, life and this occasion.

I remember growing up as a child during the many Thanksgiving dinners at my mother’s house, always wanting to bypass the prayer part of the holiday and getting right to the meal. My mind was so fixed on everything else, but acknowledging God and giving Him praise. In a day for giving thanks I was showing dishonor.

But the mercy God has shown others and myself, that even after we fail to praise His name or live an obedient lifestyle, how He has not left us. God continues to stay true to His word and promise over our lives.

Isn’t that worth giving God some praise today? Show your gratitude by taking the extra time to dedicate to God for the wonderful things in your life, both now and in the future to come.

Give God some praise today!

THE SPIRIT OF THANKSGIVING

May we always focus on the good
And count our blessings as we should.
May all our complaints depart
And thank God with a grateful heart.

Our troubles may be the same,
But we can still praise His good name!
Our load may be hard to bear,
But thank God, the Loadbearer is there.

We will forget to complain
And not mention life’s pain,
If our days are filled with praise,
And we thank God in all our ways.

Don’t think that things are so bad,
And don’t live with a heart so sad.
Countless blessings are ours each day.
Let us thank God when we kneel and pray.
