This Thanksgiving

2:34 PM

Our whole lives are made up of blessings, little pieces of God's grace that are responsible for any and all sorts of love, joy, peace and happiness.

We travel past them when we focus on the gloom and doom of the world, when we choose to look to ourselves instead of our Savior.

But they're there.

And they're not just little pieces. They're huge chunks. His love. His grace. His mercy. His salvation.

So this Thanksgiving, if you have ever given or received a hug, if you have ever experienced the awe of a morning sunset, if you have ever tasted, just tasted, the joy of the this one thing.

Stand up and bless the Lord.

Then the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said, "Stand up and bless the LORD your God from everlasting to everlasting. Blessed be your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise. -- Nehemiah 9:5

Happy Thanksgiving!
