Thanks Christmas

2 Corinthians 9:15 might be considered a Thanksgiving verse, but I had this color page from a Christmas book.  Since Jesus came to die to provide salvation from sins, His birth is the ultimate gift.

Merry Christmas!

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your amazing gift of Jesus Christ.  I praise Your name!

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good!

Praise and More Praise

I am ending Thanksgiving week with the ultimate praise passage.  I want to find every way possible to praise God.  Psalm 100 gives us reasons: We are His; His steadfast love endures.  The longer I know God and the more I learn about Him, the more I understand how praiseworthy God is.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Your steadfast, faithful love.  Thank You for allowing me to be a sheep of Your pasture.  I praise Your name.

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.

Thankfulness to Show the Gospel

I chose the gospel as my word for this year. This verse is part of the reason why. I am thankful that God saved me from my sins through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. I want to live so others see how good God is. If people know the truth of Who God is, I believe we would see a drastic change in our world. The goodness of God overcomes the ugliness of sin.

Today I am thankful for the gospel and the difference it can make in our lives.

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for providing the gospel through Jesus Christ. Thank You for being so good. Please help me to show Your goodness to others. I want others to see Your goodness in my life. I praise Your name.

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.

Thanksgiving and Praise

Can you believe it is November?  There have been times the last two years when it felt as time stood still; however, as usual, time flies by and I wonder what happened.

I want to take November to talk about thankfulness again this year.  When times get tough, I find it much easier to complain.  I want to be thankful more often.  Writing about thankfulness helps me do that.

Today I want to start with thankfulness for God’s Word.  Today’s verse tells us about the usefulness of the Bible.  We have a whole list of how the Bible (Scripture) prepares us to do good works. 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for giving us Your Word.  I am thankful for the instruction it gives me.  I praise Your name!

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.
