It is with grateful hearts we celebrate this wonderful Thanksgiving. Although there are many people in our lives to which we're thankful, our first and foremost giving of Thanks goes to our Heavenly Father.
We praise the Lord for His faithful goodness, mercy and grace. We thank Him for His ever present Spirit, Who guides, instructs, and comforts. We rejoice in His abundance of blessings and daily provisions. We give honor to God for His continual healing power. We thank Him for the beauty and breath of life that He has given. Thank you Father for being the God of second chances and your ever ready forgiveness in our repentance. "Bless the Lord, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits; Who forgives all our iniquities, Who heals all our diseases, Who redeems our life from destruction, Who crowns us with loving kindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies our mouth with good things, So that our youth is renewed like the eagle's." (Ps. 103:1-5)
Father, we thank You for Your protection and defense in the course of life. "Though we walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive us; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of our enemies. And Your right hand will save us. The Lord will perfect that which concerns us; His mercy endures forever." (Ps. 138:7,8)
Thank You Almighty God for Your everlasting love. "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you." (Is. 54:10)
We take this day to "Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay our vows to the Most High" and we know that "He who brings an offering of praise and thanksgiving honors and glorifies God; and he who orders his way aright [who prepares the way that God may show him], to him the salvation of God will be demonstrated." (Ps. 50:14, 23 NIV)
Now is the time to acknowledge the Lord God in our life and give Him thanksgiving and blessings. Make sure this Thanksgiving you offer praise to Him, first.
We wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving, In His love and ours Pastors Michael & Ginny Gulotta
