Happy Thanksgiving! Give Thanks to the Lord. For He is Good. His Love Endures Forever!

God we give you thanks on this day and every day for everything you have done. God we remember. When there was not enough, you were more than enough. Your grace saved us. God we remember.

When our pockets were empty, there was more month than money. You met every need. There was no lack. Your grace was sufficient. God we remember.

When our burdens were heavy, you carried them for us. You delivered us. God we remember. We will never forget the wonderful marvelous things you’ve done for us. On this day, we say, Thank you for your faithfulness.

Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always (1 Chr 16:8-11).

From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is THANKFUL TUESDAY! There Are So Many Things To Be Thankful For. Tell Me, What Are You Thankful For?

Glory JoaynnToday is THANKFUL TUESDAY so I decided to come out of my comfort zone, and do something radical. I promised I would no longer hide behind the walls of my writing, afraid to be transparent to the world. I listened and did what God said when He spoke to and told me it’s time to remove the veil. I’m trying something different, beginning new things, believing God for a miracle. I’m THANKFUL!

Words cannot express my gratefulness to God. I have so much to be thankful for. Through my tears Lord I’m grateful. Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful. Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful. Grateful, grateful, gratefulness, is flowing from my heart. Flowing from my heart are the issues of my heart, is gratefulness. I see myself in the future and I’m looking better. What God has for me is better.

The minute you open your eyes, give thanks to God. Give glory and honor to God. His grace woke you up this morning and started you on your way. Thank him for waking you to see another day. God granted brand new mercies, even when you didn’t deserve it. No matter what comes, put your trust in God. Be thankful. Thank God in advance for what he’s done, what he’s going to do, and what he has done. My God is able.

God, we may not know what the day will bring or even if we will make it through the day. Thank you for your faithfulness. Things may not go your way today. Be glad about it. Praise God in the hallway. You may not have all you want but you have all you need. Bless your name Lord. Bless your name. Thank you Jesus.

Sometimes even in the midst of the trial, you have to praise your way through. Rejoice. Know God got you. He promise to be with you through the storm. Be grateful. You’ll make it through the storm.

I don’t know about you but there are so many things I am thankful for. Tell me in your own words, what are you thankful for?

Be blessed! – JD

Colossians 3:15-17 “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (ESV)

God’s Grace is Sufficient

In quietness, as I meditated on the Word of God, I couldn’t help but think how this life would be so hard, if it had not been for the Lord on my side. How could I operate in this thing called life?

I poured out my heart to Him. And these are the words I said to him:

I was restless last night. I didn’t sleep well.
My body ached all over and I didn’t feel well.
God, I am thankful. You gave me another chance to stay.
I am alive. You woke me up today.

You placed the enemy under my feet.
You protected me and my family while we were asleep.
You sent angels to comfort and guard me.
We were surrounded by tranquility and peace.

I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed because my heart was full.
All I could think, “God is good.”

You are so good to me.
I am blessed even when I can’t see.
I may have more month than money.
But there is no lack. I am not hungry.

I have clothes on my back, shoes on my feet.
I have a roof over my head and food to eat.
I may be tired but I’m not spent.
I am thankful for a portion of my health and strength.

God, your Word is my daily bread.
It clothes and feed me. I’m daily fed.
You sent your Son Jesus to die for me.
His blood was shed on Calvary.

Jesus is my daily bread.
He is everything to me.
I won’t complain.
I will cherish the life you’ve given me.

Thank you for saving a wretch like me.
I once was blind but now I see.
I’ve been given another day to bring you glory.

I am overjoyed. Grateful I am amongst the land of the living.
Thank you God.
Your GRACE is sufficient.

Make a declaration today. In spite of what you are facing, let God have his way. Give thanks. Praise Him. Worship and adore Him.

He didn’t have to let you stay. Thank Him for another day. Let the words of your mouth and the meditations of your heart be acceptable in the sight of the Lord.

God’s grace is sufficient.

Be blessed! -JD

2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
