I want to take this opportunity to wish each of you a 'Happy Thanksgiving'.
I know many of you will be gathering with friends and family to celebrate a joyous day. However, there are some of you who will be volunteering so others will have a blessed day and a hot meal. There are others who are working at their jobs today. However you spend this day please take a few minutes to offer a prayer of thanksgiving to God for the day. For the opportunity to be with those you love, to serve others as a volunteer or as part of your job. Look for the blessings throughout the day, no matter where the day leads.
Please join with me as I lift each of you, our country, and our church up to God for a blessing -
Lord, we are truly blessed to call ourselves 'your children'. You have made it clear throughout the scriptures that all we have to do is 'thank' You in order to receive Your blessing. God, sometimes it is hard to thank You when our lives are 'messy' or when we think You are far off and do not see what is happening to us. Please forgive us when we do not remember You are always walking our journey with us. Lord, we live in a marvelous country and we are free to worship no matter what. Thank You! Lord, we are blessed to belong to a church where the message is Jesus Christ and 'pursuing peace'. Thank You! Lord, help us always to remember to thank You for the good, the challenging and the unknown. In the name of 'our' friend Jesus the Christ. Amen.
