Count But Not Forget

The Narrow

Yes, today is Thanksgiving Day, and I am still cooking turkey in my oven! In three hours, our old family friends will come to our house.

Yes, I am very busy now preparing a last-minute preparation for the feast. But, I just want to sit and think about what He has done in my life, in my past twenty plus years …

I did not give thanks to the Lord because I did not know who He was.
I did not give thanks to the Lord because I thought I was the Boss of my life.
I did not give thanks to the Lord because I did not realize that I needed Him.

But, I give thanks to the Lord now because He saved me from the dark pit and brought me into the light.
But, I give thanks to the Lord now because He knew me even before I was born.
But, I give thanks to the Lord now because even though my father died, my Father in heaven will neither leave me nor forsake me.

And, I give thanks to the Lord now because I know where I am going after I die. Free from shame and guilt. No condemnation. Because of His precious blood …

May your Thanksgiving be filled with gratitude for what He has done in your life.

Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 103:2-5 (ESV)

    I believe Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it’s all about giving thanks to God for His mercy in our lives. And I also thank Him for you! Happy Thanksgiving.

    Thank you for sharing your heart with us. It is no wonder that the angels rejoice when we turn from our sin and begin to live in Him. \o/
