Give Thanks

First we pray for those involved in the Fort Hood tragedy and their family and friends.

Ps 75:1 We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds.  (NIV)

It is the time of year that we give thanks. Is that a true statement? Yes, but is it the only time we give thanks? I hope not. We should be thankful continuously.  We have SO much to be thankful for. Think about the times this season that there could have been a bad injury and God spared us. Think about our jobs and how we could be hurt on them or as the kids play or at home and the miles we drive and are protected. We should be thankful for our families. Ok more then thankful! We should be thankful for our jobs and the skill God gives to us. We should be thankful for this nation that we live in. Millions of people live with much less than we have; many with out even clean water. We should be thankful for the body and mind that God gives us. All of these things can be found in Scripture and God is the one who is the giver. We do not deserve any of these good things.

To be truly thankful we must know the Lord Jesus in a personal way. We must have a personal relationship with God. I hope you do.

So today, and this month, I hope you remember that it is the Lord God that blesses us. Find things to thank Him for daily.

Have a great day racin’ in the SONshine
