“Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise! Give thanks to Him; Bless His Name!” – Psalms 100:4 ESV
Are you thinking about your blessings today? I am thankful that the Almighty Creator saw fit to cover my sins with the Blood of CHRIST, blessing me with eternal LIFE rather than the eternal death I deserve.
It is well with my soul.
Mercy Me sings it so well:
“I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone….”
If you can’t find anything to be thankful for, pick something from this list:
- Toilet paper (Thanks for the reminder, Katy!)
- Food to eat
- Clean water to drink
- Family, whether birth or adopted or chosen
- Pets, and their unconditional love …. Just like our LORD!
- I am Born Again, thanks to JESUS!
Not everything on the list will resonate with you, but I pray that you can be thankful for the last. He is the only way to true peace and thanksgiving in your life, and without Him, ….. well, without Him, we’re sunk. Period. Remember this?
No JESUS, No Peace;
Know JESUS, Know Peace!
Pure, complete Truth. I urge you to explore the Bible, and if you are new to this, I encourage you to start with the book of John.
“In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” ….. “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of GOD, even to those who believe in His Name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of GOD.” – John 1:1-5;12-13 NASB
“For GOD so loved the world, that He gave His Only begotten SON, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have Eternal Life.” – John 3:16 NASB
It can all be yours. Just ask! AMEN
