Psalm 107:8-9 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.

So thankful that God fills that longing in our hearts for 'something'! And once you know Him, you have no desire or need to look elsewhere for satisfaction or fulfillment!


Psalm 40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth, Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things [all of my needs] shall be added unto you.

Definition of thank: A grateful thought; a feeling of gratitude.

Psalm 147:7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God.

Today's grateful thought to the Lord: He has given us blessings such as adequate clothing, a warm home, abundant food and good health!


Psalm 40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth, Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.

Isaiah 51:3 For the Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in it, Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.


Thankful for the comfort He gives to His people! Joy and gladness, thanksgiving and singing will be the norm in the new heaven and new earth!

I am thankful that when we fail, God does not abandon us! Instead, He lovingly picks us up, sets us on solid ground and helps us move forward by the power of the Holy Spirit!

I'm thankful for the faithfulness of God. In the midst of whatever is going on around me, God is my constant rock!

Michele
But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you. For My power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake I DELIGHT in weaknesses, in hardships, in insults, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. II Corinthians 12:9 & 10

Marj, I'm using a devotional at the moment that reflects on the names of God, which daily reinforces how worthy of our praise He is. And that's one of my favorite Scriptures.

Evelyn, what a wonderful Sunday you had, so much to be thankful for!

Sunday, Nov 3

After being in worship this morning, I can't help but be thankful for the gift of music as a vehicle in which to way to praise God. While I can worship with many types of music, I think hymns will always be my favorite. This morning we sang "Come Thou Fount" and some of the words literally became a prayer to me . . .

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for thy courts above.

I am thankful that God is still merciful to Israel and that He is merciful to all who believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died to pay the penalty for our sin.

(Being merciful means that He withholds the punishment they/we deserve)

Fall is my favorite season of the year, and I am particularly thankful today for the colorful beauty of the world around me. Our leaves don't really start turning until November here in Georgia, and right outside my office window is the most beautiful red maple tree. I'm just thankful for the natural beauty God provides.

During these days leading up to Thanksgiving, I'd love for us to list things in our lives that we are personally thankful for. You can list something every day or just when you get a chance to stop by here. Maybe start each entry with that day's date . . .
