Thanksgiving and joy go hand in hand! One way to renew your joy is to give thanks to God and remember the ways in which he has blessed you, led you and saved you from darkness into light. If you are in a difficult season of life it is especially important for you to give thanks. Giving thanks to God will align your heart with God’s heart and remind you of what is truly important and eternal. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Psalm 100 NLT
"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, his faithfulness continues to each generation."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-23 ESV
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it."
