Hey Church Family,
God has blessed us so much hasn’t He? As Thanksgiving approaches we spend time giving thanks for all that God has done in our lives. We are blessed with health, family, provision, and so many other things that we often take for granted.
As a church we have seen some definite hard times but God has been gracious to us and had blessed us in so many ways that we can’t ignore. I hope during this time of the year you will think back through all the things God has done.
In the Old Testament the psalmists, prophets, and other writers were constantly using the past blessings of Israel to focus the people’s attention on the goodness of God. It’s impossible to read many of the psalms and not be reminded of God’s past victories and his loving kindness.
Maybe during this time of the year you need to sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and simply list all the things God has done in your life and spend time thanking Him in prayer for each one.
I know it’s not something we are accustomed to doing but I guarantee it will help refocus your mind not on what may or may not be happening in the present but on what God has previously done and what He has promised to continue to do. Please know that I am praying for you.
In His Grace,
