I’m thankful today

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

I spent today away from my family in Cincinnati, OH.  It’s not a bad place to be, but I would certainly rather be home.  I miss Jen, I miss the kids and I miss my church family, as I think about them all gathering together today.

As I’ve heard said many times, “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and I believe that.

The Lord has blessed me with more joy and thankfulness than I could ever imagine.  I’m most thankful for the work of Jesus Christ on the cross.  He bore the wrath of God so I could be declared righteous in His sight.

What a gift and what a reason to give thanks and worship Him on this Thanksgiving Day.

I enjoyed a wonderful time with some friends today.  They welcomed me into their home and showed me much love and generosity.

I greatly appreciated my friend Rob’s comment as I left, “I look forward to spending eternity with you”.

What a great thing to consider, that all Believers will spend eternity with one another, enjoying fellowship with the saints and worshiping Jesus Christ.

Romans 1:8-10 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.  For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, making request if, by some means, now at last I may find a way in the will of God to come to you.

Happy Thanksgiving
