Being Thankful

Thanksgiving is upon us once again.  What a special holiday it is.  I am reminded this year how especially good God has been to me, my family and Cornerstone Baptist Church this year.  We are so blessed to live in America and have the prosperity and freedom we so often take for granted.  If we would just be willing to let God be God and turn to Him with our troubles, we could enjoy a special peace that only a Christian can know.  I am reminded of Phillipians 4:6-7 that says, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  God has a purpose for all the things He allows to come into our lives.  Our greatest problem is trusting Him as He fulfills His grand purpose for our lives.  May we be more thankful this year as we bring our needs to Him and find His peace.
