Spring and autumn are my favorite times of the year with autumn carrying more weight. I am in awe of the spectacular colors which reflect the handiwork of our omnipotent God. The sunlight dances from one colorful leaf to another like a mystical messenger delivering a blessing from God. This universe was obviously created with minute detail. Our creator thought of everything.
Spirit of Gratitude
As we come together this season as a body of believers, may our “thanksgiving” be genuine and life-changing. May we not seek an abundance of everything but be ever grateful for what He has given us. If we could only recognize the fact that abundance does not guarantee thanksgiving; it can have an opposite affect and turn our hearts away from God. May our desire be to serve Him and not wait around for Him to serve us. If only our gratitude to God would not be merely a cliché but a genuine declaration of appreciation for who GOD is.
Psalm 100 – A Song of Thanksgiving
Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before Him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are His.
We are His people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving;
go into His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him and praise His name.
for the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and His faithfulness continues to each generation.
Heavenly Father, help us to be a blessing to someone each day we live. A-men
