A friend reminded me today (in their own unique, funny way) to thank God for His many blessings. As Thanksgiving approaches, I believe it’s always a good reminder to have a thankful heart. When people say “be thankful” we automatically think of family, friends, a warm bed, food, clothes, etc. But have you ever thought that all those material things are blessings from God? It’s quite a simple concept, yet sometimes its difficult to comprehend. It’s important to realize that every single thing you have, and every single aspect that makes you, you, is a blessing from God. God has richly blessed you with everything thing you possess. Now look at your life and ALL that you have. Isn’t God good?
And to make things even more amazing, God sent the greatest gift to us; He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for the sins of the world. Yes, that means your sins; everything bad thing you’ve done, Jesus died for. Jesus is your Savior. And if you haven’t accepted Him as your Savior and God, then you need to! Let this Thanksgiving be a reminder to you of God’s many blessings that He has so graciously bestowed upon us. We don’t deserve any of it. Yet He, in His perfect grace and mercy, gives us life, food, clothing, shelter, and everything else we have and cherish. Remember what God has done for you this Thanksgiving and give Him all the praise and glory!
Here’s a worship song by The Sing Team that I really like along with the beautiful lyrics! Enjoy!
“Oh! Great is our God! So we should worship greatly!!
No song is too loud! No orchestra too stately
To hail the majesty of our King
So lift your voices loud as we sing
Oh! Great is our God! So let our songs be endless!!
So awesome His ways, how could we comprehend them?
So we will make it known to our kids
And we will sing about the gracious gifts you give
We will sing your praise and pour forth your fame
We will bless your name
Let every one give thanks, because our God is great!
Oh! Great is our God! And we cannot contain it!
We sing from our souls, affected by His greatness
His mercy covers all that Heʼs made
Showing His glory and His grace”
