Thanksgiving Reflections

Staying with family always adjusts my "attitude of gratitude." I have a great family and much to be thankful for.

Duet. 8:10
When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God
for the good land he has given you.

Psalm 100:4
Enter his gates with
thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

Psalm 107:22
Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his
works with songs of joy.

Col. 1:12
giving thanks to the Father, who
has qualified you[a] to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of

Col. 2:7
rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the
faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

1 Thess.
give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in
Christ Jesus.

Note to self: Do I want to be in God's will? I need to give thanks. I don't feel it. I do it.

Matt. 12:50
For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother
and sister and mother."

Eph. 6:6
Obey them not only to win their
favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God
from your heart.

Heb. 13:21
equip you with everything good for doing
his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ,
to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
