The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18 NIV
LOVE nurtures a grateful heart. God is LOVE and He LOVES us. He is the Provider of everything we need to be beautifully blessed. He is faithful in His timing and has a plan for our days. He is in charge of the future.
Sometimes, life doesn’t go as expected and we find ourselves wondering how to endure. But God reveals His will in mighty ways and LOVES us through every season. He opens our hearts to find gratitude and learn how it feels to welcome calm.
God humbles hearts for Christ. As we welcome the Christmas season and draw closer than before, we begin to recognize HE why knows our hearts. He helps us experience the LOVE He has for each one of us and find STRENGTH in His presence.
God helps us experience what He chooses to provide. He holds us together and fills us with everything we need to restore our lives. He provides PEACE to help us cope with HOPE and reminds us who loves us completely.
God will help us consider HOW He blesses our lives. We will find reasons to be thankful as we open our eyes and consider the many reasons we should thank Him.
Thanksgiving is so much more than a day to fuel our bellies. It is a precious opportunity to renew our souls and be reminded who WILL take care of us. GOD is HERE; preparing us to welcome a true spirit of thankfulness and receive the bounty of His everlasting LOVE.
In the valleys He is with us. At the peak He shows how far we have come. God WILL head us in the right direction. Surely, He will bless us with opportunities to embrace gratitude. Even when the journey is hard, God will help us keep on going and reach an understanding of why HE will always take care of us and those we love.
Dear God, thank you for Thanksgiving and the opportunity to give thanks for ALL You have done. Help us remember to begin our prayers with PRAISE, as we seek You and find purpose in what You provide. Help us welcome the Christmas season and the Christ Child who waits to be received. We will love you with ALL of our hearts and never forget the many reasons You give us to be thankful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Amen
