So much to be thankful for

I love Thanksgiving!  It is an awesome time to reflect on all the blessing of the Lord!  Every year the President of the United States gives an honorary pardon to some lucky turkey who will spend the rest of his entire life in retirement on a farm, forever safe from harm.  The other day we had two wild turkeys in our back yard.  Rather than putting them on the Thanksgiving table, I, too,  extended a pardon.  They soon wandered off into the woods, free and safe from harm.  I don’t think the turkeys ever knew the potential danger they were in, never mind being thankful to be allowed to go free.  This year, as I consider these turkeys, I am reminded of the pardon God extended to me!  It is not because I am lucky, but because I am loved of God, so much so that He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross for me.  That alone is enough to be thankful this Thanksgiving!

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.
