“Bring my faithful people to me–those who made a covenant with me by giving sacrifices.” Psalm 50:5
Fall brings fall foliage, the orange, yellow, and brown colors, the leaves turns and soon fall from the tree. The days get shorter, the weather has a cold crisp feeling to the mornings and a briskness at night and one now requires a light jacket for that evening walk. November arrives and I remember the times of family dinners and I am thankful.
Beloved, November has the Thanksgiving holiday. I think Thanksgiving’s one of my favorite holiday’s because there’s no pretense thankfulness. Thankfulness starts with gratitude according to my friend Mitzi Neely. She has written a Bible Study A Thankful Heart 30 Days to the Grateful Life. Each day has a bible study and a journal page with scripture to focus your mind on gratitude and thankfulness. I’ve worked my way part way through the book and it is a page-turner. I love the Point of Focus and the prayer. So you know what comes next if you leave a comment on what God is doing in your life one special person will get a copy of this book.
One Thanksgiving we didn’t have much money, my husband had been hurt, and there was a knock at the door. My church delivered us groceries. Attached to brand new pot holders was the coupon for a turkey and $100.00 in groceries. I still remember the kindness of the Sunday school class that delivered this treasure. I was so thankful.
Beloved, what are you thankful for today?
Father God, thank you for Mitzi Neely and her new bible study on gratitude and thankfulness. Help each one of us to be more thankful. Help us to make a covenant of thankfulness. Let my praise be pleasing to you. In Jesus name. Amen
Beloved, how can you be more thankful each and every day of November?
