Give thanks, with a grateful heart
Give thanks, to the Holy One
Give thanks, because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son
And now let the weak say “I am strong”
Let the poor say “I am rich”
Because of what the Lord has done for us
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Tha pastor said something interesting last Sunday. He said, “If you don’t know Christ, you have nothing to be thankful for, because everything else will pass away.” I thought that was an interesting idea. So often I make my little “thankful” list: I’m thankful for a job, for a place to live, food to eat, cats to keep me company, family who loves me, cell phones, etc. Yet I forget to add God to that list. Above everything else, I should be thankful to Him and for Him and His (undeserved) love for me. I am thankful that He has brought me up out of sin so I can know Christ as my Savior. I know that’s all so clichÃ©, but there’s really no better way to say it. Even if all those things passed away – my job, my house, my cats… I still will have Christ, because He will never leave me. Now that’s something to be truly thankful for.
Anyways, I just wanted to share that! I hope everyone else has a wonderful Thanksgiving (you, too, Zay, even if you are in France :-)). By the way, thanks for your comment, Charlsie, and Edie from before. It is great to get in touch with other MKs!
