(Psalm 107:1 NIV)  “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever!” 

Thanksgiving!!!!!!  Wow do we have a lot to give thanks for!  Taking a day to reflect on Thanksgiving has been great.  It has given me once again a chance to see how much the Lord loves me.  I see all that he has given me and I am in shock that he could treat a sinner, someone who disobeys him daily, so well.  And it helps me to realize that the only reason I have all that I have is because of Jesus!

Jesus is the reason you and I can give thanks!  He has given us all that we have and will ever need when he died for us on the cross and rose again from the grave.  What more can we ask for?!  Jesus has given us eternal life with him in heaven!  He has given us everything we will ever need right there.  Yet, out of his goodness and mercy he gives us more.  He gives us… family, friends, a house, food, insurance, jobs, clothes, our health, football, black Friday shopping, and the list could go on and on.  My friends we can be thankful every day of our lives because the Lord is good!

And we know that HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER because no matter what happens to our earthly possessions here on this earth we know that we have a glorious heaven waiting for us all because of Jesus!

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good and his love endures forever!

Thankful for Jesus and all that he has given me just like you are,
