Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I have a question for you: How are you? No, really; how are you?
For so many of us, Thanksgiving ends up being a time of more:
And this tumultuous upheaval of our every day lives is welcomed and joyous (and exhausting!). There are so many things you can do to get “ready” for today:
Delegate some tasks
Ask friends & family members to pitch in
Today I’d like to ask you to prepare your heart for Thanksgiving in three ways:
Sit down and breathe. For 3 minutes. Don’t do anything. Don’t say anything. Don’t organize anything. Just breathe.
Genesis 2:7: Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Pray with me: Lord, Today I’m grateful for this busy, messy thing we call life! It is a gift from God.
Think back to the time when you first heard the good news of salvation. The first time you really heard it and it sunk in. Remember how amazed and awed you were by God’s love? Bask in His love even now.
John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Pray with me: Lord, Today I’m grateful for Jesus & for salvation.
Take a couple minutes and write down everything you’re grateful for. You may also want to do this around the dinner table: Have each person take turns saying something they’re thankful for). There is so much to be grateful for. We don’t have to wait for a perfect time or a perfect life. It is always the right time to praise the Lord – no matter what you’re doing or what’s going on. There is strength and peace in faith and praise.
Deuteronomy 12:7: There also you and your households shall eat before the Lord your God, and rejoice in all your undertakings in which the Lord your God has blessed you.
Pray with me: Lord, Today I am rejoicing in the Lord with a thankful heart!
I pray that each and every member of the Christian Mommy Blogger community finds time during the Thanksgiving holiday to set their hearts towards the Lord in gratitude for His salvation and the hope we have in Him.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
For three things I thank God every day of my life: Thanks that he has vouchsafed me knowledge of his works; deep thanks that he has set in my darkness the lamp of faith; deep, deepest thanks that I have another life to look forward to-a life joyous with light and flowers and heavenly song. – Helen Keller
