            Thanksgiving is a day that has been celebrated by our country since 1692. However, Christians have practiced a life of being thankful long before then. Being thankful is an essential aspect of Christianity, as we live in a state of acknowledging the great sacrifice that was made by our risen Savior, Jesus Christ.  As the scripture has declared in Acts 17:28, for in Him we live, and move, and have our being.   Glory to God, from whom all blessings flow!

This has been a trying year for all of us and it is important to remember that it rains on the just as well as the unjust.  God has brought us through a pandemic, racial injustice, demonstrations, riots, and political uncertainty. Yet we remain blessed, on fire and full of power; He reigns over the just as well as the unjust. If God be for you, who can be against you?

He is that great I AM, who is able to keep us from falling.  Let us look to what is right, what is working, what we have accomplished, and what we have.  Let us shy away from focusing on what is wrong, not working, unaccomplished or what we are lacking, for with God all things are possible!

You have every reason to be thankful. Since God is on our side, we can continue to count our blessings.  This Thanksgiving, let us all set our affections on things above, stand still and know that He alone is God.
