God Deserves our Praise ~

 Hello my dear friends~
Let us give our Lord thanks. Why? Because He is God
and deserves our praise.
Here in the United States we will be celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow.
 Many of us will gather together with loved ones
enjoying the blessings of a delicious meal and sweet fellowship one with another.
But whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving Day or not
let us all bow our hearts and heads with gratitude 
for every good thing which the Lord has blessed us with.
 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father."
(James 1:17)
We have so much to be thankful for, surely the Lord is worthy of our praise.
As we desire to have deep and lasting joy,
it's important for us to develop and attitude of appreciation.
We must purpose in our hearts to be thankful for everything
and count our blessings throughout the beautiful days God affords us.
 "I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart."
(Psalm 9:1)
As we count our blessings, let us begin with what it cost Jesus
to have a relationship with us. 
Let us be grateful for the amazing  forgiveness that He gave us
pardoning your sins ~ past present and future.
Let us ponder in our hearts how great and wonderful God is;
who would never leave us or forsake us, but loves
protects and provides for our every need.
And let us not forget the wonderful plans God has for us
and all the loved ones He's given us to share our lives with.
 "Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous:
for praise is comely for the upright."
(Psalm 33:1) 
  Dear Friends ~ we have so much to be grateful for.
Surely the Lord is worthy of our praise.
Therefore, let us go through each day voicing our praise and appreciation.
There's no substitute for thanksgiving and praise to grow
our intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father.
He deserves our praise.

"I will be glad and rejoice in thee:
I will sing praise to thy name,
O thou most High."

Be Thankful!
~ Debbie ~

Amen! This post is a good reminder for ALL our days...not just the day before Thanksgiving. We do indeed have MUCH to be thankful for. I can't help but give thanks and praise the Lord for His goodness and protection especially after what happened this morning...I'm still shaking inside!

How I thank our precious Lord for His great love, mercy, and grace. Happy Thanksgiving to you! And I'll see you tomorrow :) Love you!

Amen dear Debbie, I often quote " In everything give thanks for this is the will of God, in Christ Jesus, concerning you." Mind you it's a very hard one to live up to..😉
We were created for the purpose of giving God pleasure, especially in giving Him the glory and thanks for what He does. Oh how often I fall short.
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Rev 4:11
May Lord bless your family time dear friend, and keep you in His mercy in the days ahead, ❤️❤️
