A Way of Life … Thankfulness

November 27/28

“Give thanks to The Lord, for He is good. For His lovingkindness is everlasting.” Psalm 136:1 New American Standard

Thanksgiving is a way of life. It is a response to who God is .. what He has done .. and because you’ve realized that His love will take over everything. Thanksgiving is intentional. You think about it through all the areas of your life. Being thankful is part of how God created you. He created you to receive His goodness and to know His faithful ways are forever and for today. Jesus thanked His Father before He blessed some loaves and fishes. He thanked Him again before He raised his friend Lazarus from the dead. Giving thanks is what the Holy Spirit creates in you. He creates the space in you to truly appreciate God’s faithfulness in all situations .. in all moments .. and in all conditions of your life. GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD, AND HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER. Will you make time today to give thanks? He won’t let go …

“Praise God everybody! Applaud God, all people! His love has taken over our lives; God’s faithful ways are eternal. Hallelujah! Psalm 117

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
