My Thanksgiving Message

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
— 1 Corinthians 15:57-58

That my friend is one of the greatest, most uplifting passages of Scriptures in the Bible. This is especially fitting for Thanksgiving. No matter how bad things are, if you are a Christian, you can always give thanks to God for the victory we have through Jesus. We can be both thankful and positive even in these days of distress and calamity. That reminds me of the little boy who came home from school and said, dad, I think i flunked my math test. The dad replied, do you have to be so negative? The boy then said, ok, I'm positive I flunked my math test.

Alexander White, a Scottish preacher was known for his uplifting prayers from the pulpit. It didn't matter what was going on or how bad things were he always found something for which to be grateful. One Sunday morning the weather was so stormy and gloomy that one church member thought to herself, "Certainly the preacher won't think of anything for which to thank the Lord on a miserable day like this." Much to her surprise, however, the preacher began by praying, "We thank you, O God that it is not always like this."

Yep, there is always a way to thank God, even in the worst of circumstances. Where there's a will, there's a way.

We are living in some very nasty and evil times. But we can thank God that we have a great future to look forward to. We have victory through Jesus. Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless!
