Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
Psalms 105:1 (NKJV)
This Thanksgiving I’m thankful that I have a relationship with my Creator, and because of that I have a joy that is indescribable! The eternal life He has given to me is full and free. I believe when my life on earth is done, I will spend eternity with Jesus in heaven.
I am also thankful for my friends and family. In fact as I think about family, I get so excited because, God willing, I will be seeing my family next week. I leave Oklahoma City for Kenya on Tuesday, November 27th.
Josh & Deb Osmon will be joining me for eleven days of ministry in Kenya beginning December 19th. We are so grateful that our airplane tickets have been provided for through some generous gifts. We have also been able to procure 20 study Bibles to bring to Kenyan pastors and lay leaders. This would not have been possible without the prayer and financial support of our ministry partners. Thank You! We have a prayer guide available for anyone who would like to specifically pray for us during the mission trip.
Here are some thanksgiving verses for you to share with your loved ones:
- Psalm 100:4.
- Psalm 119:62
- 2 Corinthians 9:15
- 1 Thessalonians 5:18
As you read the Word and express your gratitude to God and to those who have meant a lot to you, why not take time to practice what Dr. Charles Stanley encourages us to do:
“…take the opportunity to reflect humbly on God’s countless blessings–of forgiveness, salvation, and life itself. Let the day be a time when you truly commit to placing Him first in your lives.” (Taken from In Touch Daily Devotional, Nov. 22, 2007 )
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU AND YOURS!!
Giving Thanks to the Holy One,
