On this Thanksgiving day, we feel blessed to belong to an amazing God who, out of His great love for us, died on the cross to save us from our sins! So, to honor our Lord today, we’d each like to offer up a sacrifice of praise to our Savior!
“Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.”
– Hebrews 13:15 –
I am thankful this year that You are THE source of TRUE joy and contentment. True joy can only be found when we are walking with you and honoring others before ourselves. You’ve been showing me this year that when I find myself whining or complaining – whether literally or in my heart – that I’m either loving some “thing” more than I am loving you, or I’m loving myself more than You or others. I’m thankful that you make these sins so evident in the hearts of my children to convict my own heart as I painfully acknowledge the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! Thank you, God, that as my source of joy, I can experience contentment despite my circumstances.
I am thankful for God’s generosity to me. He gives me abundant grace every day. I am thankful for my husband who continues to love and care for me even though he knows my many flaws. I am thankful for my son who amazes me everyday. I am thankful for the beautiful home that God blessed our family with this year… it is more than I deserve and I pray daily that we will use our home to serve Him. I am thankful that God continues to listen to the cry of my heart–even when I pray for years about something–I know His love and care surround me. I am thankful that God is gracious and that Jesus paid for all my sins at the cross…I am completely undeserving of such grace and mercy!
I am thankful that you are so faithful. You always remember me and stay near me, even when I can’t see you or lose sight of the bigger picture. I am thankful that you long to shelter me with your loving-kindness and remind me that you are sovereign and hold my life in your supremely powerful, and infinitely caring hands. I am thankful that you are my never-ending source of comfort, peace, and strength. I am thankful that even though I am impatient, blind, and judgmental, you are long-suffering, all-knowing, and merciful. I am thankful that you deal gently with me as you open my eyes to your truth and teach me to walk in your ways. But, I am especially so thankful that you loved me first and gave me the grace to love you in return, so I can call you my Savior!
Please join us in offering a sacrifice of praise to God by leaving a comment below! We’d love to hear about which attributes of God’s character, things He’s been revealing to you, or ways He’s been growing you that you are especially thankful for!
Also, on this special day, we’d like to give you a small gift to say “Thank you!” for being such wonderful friends and customers – a free Christmas printable! The graphic prints out as an 8”x10” image, and for the best results, we recommend printing it out on white card stock or photo paper.
We hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!
