Truly Thankful

I love Thanksgiving. Love the food, love the family, love that there are no gifts to buy. Every year it always seems so easy to think of all the things I am thankful for. I am so, so thankful for the GIFTS in my life.
This year I am thinking a lot of what I am thankful for. We are unemployed - again. The unknown ahead of us- again. Knowing that God will provide and hoping it will be soon - again. And yet I am thankful. I am so thankful this year for the GIVER. He, in his sovereign love and pursuit of His own glory holds us in His hands. We feel His grip more closely when we are afraid and unsure. Our trials chase us to Him and the lack of financial stability forces us to rest in His provision. And so for that, I am thankful.
I urge all of you to be thankful today. Be thankful for the good and wonderful and for the bad and painful. It is all part of His plan. It is all because He loves us. it is all to make us like Jesus - the ULTIMATE gift.
Happy Thanksgiving!

"In all things give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." I Thess 5:18
