Blessings and Thanksgiving

Psalm 95:2 - "Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song." (NIV)

This Thanksgiving season may we come before Him with grateful hearts, praising Him and thanking Him for our many blessings.

What a great time to begin a gratitude/blessing list if you have not already.  As you go through your day, begin writing down your blessings which may range from Jesus and salvation to birds in your feeder.  Count your many blessings and you will be blessed.  Your focus will be on Him and not on self.  You will "extol Him" when you come into His presence with thanksgiving for your blessings.

May we come to the point that Habakkuk wrote about in Habakkuk 3:17-18.  "Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, thought the olive crop fails . . . . . . . yet, I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior."

Lord, give us grateful hearts.  May we see our many blessings and come before you with thanksgiving.


  1. Hoping to be in a spirit of thanksgiving everyday!

  2. Jean said" We can also thank Him when we grumble if we look at how bad it could be.

    Lord though my times seem bad...it could be alot worse, so thank you for things not being as bad as they could be. Amen
