Thanksgiving Day 2017

By Sindy Nagel

 

I’m thankful for my God above

And for Jesus, His own Son

I’m grateful for the Holy Spirit

The Godhead, Three-in-One

 

I give Him thanks for His great love

It’s deeper than I know

I thank Him that He’s always present

Everywhere I go

 

I’m grateful for His promises

To be my strength and peace

I’m thankful that He hears me

When I get on my knees

 

I appreciate His promptings

To be more like His Son

I’m grateful for His guidance

His truth and great wisdom

 

I thank You, Lord, this special day

Thanksgiving Two O Seventeen

For being the most loving Daddy

That this world has ever seen

 

I bless You now as You bless me

You are my Number One

From the first light every morning

Until each day is done

 

You meet my needs and my wants

More abundantly than I ask

You’re attentive to my longings

I know that’s no small task

 

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

I praise You for all You do

May my life be a witness

Bringing glory and honor to You

 

Happy Thanksgiving to My Father,

To Your Spirit and Jesus too

I’m grateful for Your sacrifice

And for everything You do!


 

Devote Yourself in Prayer

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” (Colossians 4:2-6)

My child, you are the salt of the earth. Make the most of every opportunity to be My witness. Always treat unbelievers with dignity, kindness, and respect for they are My children too. Season your words with grace as you clearly proclaim My message. Devote yourself to prayer and I will open doors for you to enter with My gospel. Be watchful for the opportunities I provide you. Be thankful that I use you to carry out My plan. Work at it with all your heart. Your reward is an inheritance from Me. It is the Lord Christ you serve. I desire that you take My gospel into all the world. Your prayers will unlock new passageways every day. Devote yourself to Me in prayer.

Breathing in Your Grace

Lord, you woke me to these lyrics from Matt Redman’s song Your Grace Finds Me:

“So I’m breathing in Your grace. And I’m breathing out Your praise. I’m breathing in Your grace. Forever I’ll be Breathing in Your grace.”

John 20:22 says–Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

My sweet child, when you confessed your belief in me, you received my grace. I breathed on you and you received my Holy Spirit into your heart. My peace remains in you just as my Spirit remains in you at all times. Forever, you will breathe in my grace and peace.

Do you know how much I love you? Do you understand how deeply I care about you? I knew you before I formed you. I breathed the breath of life into your lungs. You are alive because I wanted you and created you. And now I make my home in you.

You live because I live. Your heart is alive, because I am alive in you. Do not forget that I am alive. You do not worship a god made of stone. Every breath you take is because of my grace. Every day is a gift from me. Breathe in my grace and breathe out my praise. Be a witness to my goodness every time you take a breath. Breathe in my grace and breathe out my praise before a watching world.
