Thank you God! Today is a day when we give thanks to God for His many blessings. We are grateful to be with friends and family and to gather together in fellowship over the meal. We are thankful for all of our material and physical blessings as well – for job and home and other possessions. We are richly blessed and it is good to give thanks to our provider.
We are most deeply blessed, though, by our relationship with the living God. In God we find our Savior and our hope. Like Job, all we have can fall away, yet we can still count ourselves blessed because we know God and God knows us. Although hard times will come, we can trust in God in the midst of and through these difficulties. God is faithful and true.
I am most thankful for His love and mercy. In my humanity I stumble and I sin. In these times my love for God fails. But His love never fails. In these times, when I repent and seek God again, His mercies flow down upon me like a powerful rain, washing me clean, making me new, drawing me back into that relationship again. Thank you God.
