One Wish For Thanksgiving


"Give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks to the Holy One,
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son.
And now let the weak say, "I am strong," let the poor say,
"I am rich, because of what the Lord has done for us."
Give thanks, Give thanks, Give thanks."

Henry Smith 1978

I really like Thanksgiving. The word itself is such a powerful one.... T H A N K S G I V I N G.....For at least a part of the season we ought to take stock of our lives and think in terms of the things in our lives that mean something to us. I want to share three things with you this morning: A credo....4 scriptures...One Wish...

The Credo: Give thanks in all circumstances
                  Give thanks for everything
                  Give thanks at all times

The Scriptures: "Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" 1 Thess.1:18.
                        "Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" Eph. 5:20.
                        "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" Phil. 4:6.
                        "I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving" (Psa. 69:30).

The Wish: Someone was asked that age old question...."If you could have one wish granted to you, what would it be?" After thoughtful consideration, the person responded; "I wish that I could be given an even greater ability to appreciate all that I have already."

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving... Love mark Phil. 4:11
