“I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30 (KJV)
In November we take the time to be thankful for all our blessings, (i.e.) family, children, grandchildren, friends, church, jobs, wonderful spouses, and the list goes on and on.
If we took a tablet and pencil and just started jotting down all the blessings we are so thankful for, then as we wrote, it would begin to come into our hearts and minds all the blessings that we take for granted. Blessings we sometimes forget to be thankful for.
The greatest blessing we have to be thankful for is that before time began, God planned for His Son The Word, to come into this world; born of a virgin; be named Jesus, grow up and willingly give His life and shed every drop of His Precious Holy Blood on the cross at Calvary to redeem mankind of their sins. If Jesus had not been willing there would have never been a way that we could ever live in Heaven with God forever and eternally.
How, do you ask can a person such as I, live with God in heaven eternally? The answer; the same way I am going to, by accepting Jesus into your heart, ask Him to forgive every sin you have ever committed and let His Precious Blood wash your sins away, though your sins were black as coal when Jesus’ blood washes them, they become as white as the whitest wool.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NIV)
I pray that you will not let this Thanksgiving go by without accepting Jesus as your personal Savior and The Lord of your life.
The fact that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior is my greatest thing I have to be thankful for. Please accept Him as your Personal Savior and say with me,”Jesus you are my greatest blessing. I am thankful for you more than anything else in the world AMEN.”
My precious readers Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Blessings Gloria.
