Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-- Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. - Psalm 103: 1-5
A Time of Praise and Thanksgiving
As we head into the month of Thanksgiving, we all have so much to be thankful for. This year my family is very thankful as my mother-in-law will be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in two years. She had some health issues that kept her from having the family gathering. But God intervened and she is feeling so much better.
I am sure we all know those who are less fortunate than us. I see it around me every day. The Bayshore area of New Jersey, were I live and work, is still suffering from the effects of Superstorm Sandy. A family in our own church finally moved into their new home after almost 2 years because of Sandy. We are rejoicing over God's faithfulness!
Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls-- Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills. - Habakkuk 3:17-19
2014 has had its ups and downs. Even as I write this, my wife is in the hospital waiting to be released. But as the verse from Habakkuk mentions above, "yet I will rejoice in the Lord." Maybe home educating your children did not go as planned. Maybe, you've had to help with a family member's health. Don't look at what is happening around you. Join me in praise and worship to our faithful God. Remind yourself of His character.
Make this a joyful Thanksgiving!
