Greetings my friends,
As we look to November and the month of Thanksgiving, I can recall many things that I am thankful for in this past year. I'm thankful for God's faithfulness to me through my everyday living - how He reminds me to put on the whole armor of God and to stay in His Word. I'm thankful for His love and grace and mercy that He provides. I'm thankful that He continues to reveal Himself to me through the Word, that He helps me to grow in faith and in my walk with the LORD. I'm thankful for God's faithfulness in the "storms of life" - when things look bleak and hardship seems to be everywhere - yet God is faithful. I am reminded of the Scripture found in 2 Corinthians 4:6-10
For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
While I may not understand or comprehend all things I can be reassured through the hope I have in Christ and what HE secured for me on the cross. I pray that you will take some time to count your blessings this month. To have an attitude of gratitude that will carry you each and every day!
Be blessed with His LOVE!
