What does it mean to be thankful? To express my thankfulness would require that I write my complete autobiography. My whole life is one of thanksgiving. Itâ€™s not that I have always been perfect or done everything right, but it is because Jesus redeemed my life from destruction. Even when I was very far from Him, He was very near to me. I had my own plans, but He directed the course of my life. Even the desolation caused by my sins led me to search for Him. My sicknesses led me to Him because there was no other cure. The hurt from my losses led me into His arms for comfort. I am thankful for His mercy. He did not hold me accountable for my many sins because Jesus took my punishment for them upon Himself. I am thankful for His grace which gives me the power to live a life that is holy and acceptable to Him. So, this November day I will continue to ask God to bless my house and I will give thanks to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for loving me. No matter what happens, even the things I would normally identify as â€œbadâ€, I know that He is in control and He will turn everything around and make it good.
â€œAnd we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purposeâ€ (Romans 8:28 NKJV).
