ARE YOU THANKFUL??


Today our nation celebrates Thanksgiving. Most will sit down and overstuff themselves and afterwards lie down for a nap never even thinking what this holiday really is about. After that will be watching football. Don't forget the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade which is televised each year. It could be rather easy to just forget God on this day because of all your busy activities.


This holiday is based on the 1621 feast between the Pilgrims and Native Americans thanking God for their harvest. In 1789 President George Washington declared Thursday November 26th, a day of public thanksgiving and prayer. It was still not a national holiday until October 3rd, 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln declared the last Thursday in November as Thanksgiving, but President Franklin D Roosevelt in 1939 declared it to be the next to last Thursday in November.

So what do you give thanks for today? A family, good health, food to eat, friends, a job, living in freedom, and so much more. Take some time right now and think of all the ways God has tremendously blessed you.


'Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His mercies endure forever.'Psalm 107:1 (NIV)

PRAYER: Lord I am truly thankful for the abundance of blessings in my life. I am overflowing with joy because you love me so much. Today I stop and say thank you for directing my steps and guiding me each and every day. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Happy Thanksgiving! Take about 6 minutes and praise God in song by clicking link below.
