Thanksgiving Life Christmas Day 2021

I hope you had a perfect Thanksgiving Day. It’s wonderful to have a USA holiday set aside (and other places as well, but on different days) to be thankful.

Now, let’s work towards a Thanksgiving Life, a life characterized by thankfulness.

We are to give thanks in all things.

In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

We are to rejoice always.

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! (Philippians 4:4)

Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23)

But I don’t; I’m not.

I am determined—again—to have a settled attitude of gratitude. Lord, please, please, make my life be characterized by thanksgiving, by rejoicing in You, by joy. Help me, day by day, look to You.

A Psalm for Thanksgiving.

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.

Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.

Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.

For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.” (Psalm 100)
