Ecclesiastes 3:7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak.NIV

I Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.KJV

According to tradition, when the New England settlers met with many difficulties and hardships, they often fasted and prayed for long periods of time. They had invested their all, to come to a country of religious freedom. Their dependence upon God was very real.

The time of first harvest, such as it was, had come. Another fast was called. One of the farmers stood, and pointed out that God had seen them through so many trials, when things could have been much worse. He then, pointed out that they had achieved the very thing that that came for, religious freedom! He then suggested that a day of gratitude would be a far greater gift to God, than bombarding Him with more and more of their desires. Thanksgiving Day was then established.

How many times do we pour out our hearts to God, He answers, and we go merrily on our way? Do we ever spend the time in praise that we do in asking?

This Thanksgiving, letís give our God and Savior, a full heart of praise. We may have had problems this past year, but we have been led through both the joys and valleys!
As we eat an abundance of food, this Thanksgiving Day, letís let our praises rise!

Thanksgiving Day is not the turkey,
Nor the table laded with good food.
Itís the lifting of a thankful heart
To our God, who supplies all things good! V.M.

Prayer: Our most precious Heavenly Father, You have supplied all of our needs, our requests, and much more than we have even asked. We have seen you touch friends and heal them, bringing others to receive Your salvation. We have seen You convict and change many lives, and yes, You have convicted me, and helped me to realize that I am absolutely nothing without You. Today, I praise you from the bottom of my heart for Who You are! You are the Author and Finisher of our faith. You are the Creator, Sustainer, and Satisfier of my soul. You are the Great I AM! You are the Beginning and the End, and more than we can even name. You are, THE NAME. Take my life and help me to show forth Your praise to all that I meet. Father, I simply want to Thank You! Amen


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
