Give HIM Thanks

Psalm 100

A psalm of thanksgiving.
 1 Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
    2 Worship the Lord with gladness.
      Come before him, singing with joy.
 3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
      He made us, and we are his.
      We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
      go into his courts with praise.
      Give thanks to him and praise his name.
 5 For the Lord is good.
      His unfailing love continues forever,
      and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

My first thought when I sat down to write this morning was...
What should I say about Thanksgiving? Immediately Psalm 100 came to mind.

There are so many things in my life I have to be thankful for. The best and most awesome is having Jesus as my Savior!

Today, and everyday, we need to do what verse 4 says. Enter into HIS gates...go into HIS courts...and above all...Give HIM thanks! Without the LORD I am nothing...we are nothing! HE loves us unconditionally. Forever and ever. HIS love never changes and HE never fails us. HE is faithful to us through everything. We need to give HIM thanks everyday for without HIM...we wouldn't have any days.

Let us acknoweldge HIM today in everything we do and above all...Give HIM thanks!

I am so thankful we have a God, a father, who loves us, pursues us, protects us, provides for us, heals us - who opens my eyes to love unconditionally, who holds me when life shakes me! Your words and scripture are so perfect for today - well, really any day.

Have a blessed, joy-filled, peace-filled, laughter-filled Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving. Our God deserves our thanks 24/7 and the amazing thing is this thanks is not only for Him but for us, for when we are thankful we become happy and when we are happy our out look on life changes. He is so good.

God bless your day.
