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!

See, What Had Happened Was….God’s Grace!

Crooked Places JoaynnOftentimes when we find ourselves in a situation that seems hopeless and we are in despair, we begin to look at our circumstances which will never change by looking at them. God is working out your situation no matter how bad it seems. Choose not to respond to your circumstance. With God, it can and will change.

The devil tries to kill your witness and wants you to think God has changed his mind about what he promised he will do. You already know. Won’t he do it? He wants you to believe nothing good will never happen. If God said it will, it’s going to happen.

God does not change. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. His word in heaven is settled. It is already established. Don’t listen to the lies of the devil. The enemy can never change that. God’s Word stands firm in heaven. Believe that!

If you were to think about the many sleepless nights you endured because of worry and fear, how many tears you cried and couldn’t breathe on your own because of doubt and you felt alone, would you remember how God brought you through?

Would you remember how he sent a ram in the bush when you least expected it to save you? Are you reminded where God brought you from, if you were to look back over your life and see how far you’ve come? In your lifetime you may have seen worse. Didn’t God do it before? He can do it again. Nothing and I mean nothing is impossible for God. He is Sovereign. He is faithful.

Take a moment to gather yourself and look at where God brought you from. Turn your worry into worship. Stop adding up your problems and start counting your blessings. Pray without ceasing. Stay in the Word. The battle is His, not yours. Put on the full armor of God. Let Him fight your battles.

Answers to your prayers may not come right away but if you keep believing, trusting, and have faith in God, he will answer your prayers when you least expect it. God hears the prayers of the righteous. Prayers of the righteous avail much. He hears you. Don’t give up. No matter what happens today, be encouraged. When nothing makes sense, God’s grace is sufficient. You will be blessed beyond measure, even though you didn’t do a thing to deserve it.

Thank you God for going before us, making the crooked places straight. You will accomplish your work with or without our participation. You know what you’re going to do. You have a great plan for us. We trust you. Thank you for your faithfulness.

Be blessed! – JD

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.”
