Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I am thankful…

Because– “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

Because– “He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so did he not open his mouth.” – Isaiah 53:7

Because– “On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.” – Luke 24:1-3

Because– “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.” – Hebrews 1:1-2

Because– “Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance.” – Hebrews 9:15

Because– “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” – Romans 8:1

Because– “For in him, we live and move and have our being.” – Acts 17:28

Because– “Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” – 2nd Corinthians 4:17

Because– “The saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where O death, is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?’” – 1st Corinthians 15:54-55

Because– “Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day- and not only to me, but to all who have longed for his appearing.” – 2nd Timothy 4:8

“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1st Thessalonians 5:18

    Thanks for the post. I am usually given the honor of offering the prayer at our annual Thanksgiving Dinner/Family Reunion. I think I will read this before bowing in prayer.

    Have a good and safe holiday!

    Our thanksgiving is to be accompanied by sadness this year. A long time friend of the family passed away and I will be in Florence for the funeral this weekend.

    But I am thankful that he was one of God’s finest.
