Pr. 27:1: “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.”
What a fitting verse for Thanksgiving Day. Truly we do not know how many days, hours, or minutes we have left here on earth. No need to boast about things that have not yet taken place.
We do, however, know what has happened in our past. Today is the day to remember and give thanks for the many blessings in our lives. We can certainly boast about all the amazing things our Lord has done or provided in our lives. He is so faithful.
This month our family made a “Thankful Jar” and filled it with things for which we are thankful. Pasting our slips of gratitude into our Thanksgiving journal last night was a privilege, as I looked back over the things for which we chose to be thankful. Our blessing truly are endless.
“Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are His deeds, and His righteousness endures forever. He has caused His wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
He provides food for those who fear Him; He remembers His covenant forever. He has shown His people the power of His works, giving them the lands of other nations. The works of His hands are faithful and just; all His precepts are trustworthy. They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness.
He provided redemption for His people; He ordained His covenant forever–Holy and Awesome is His name. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal praise.” Ps. 111
I pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving today. No matter where you are, who you are with or not with, and what you have planned, just remember all that the Lord has done and give Him thanks today. Great are His works! And they are steadfast forever and ever! Now THAT makes a Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
