Monday Morning Devo--With Thanksgiving
For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. (1 Timothy 4:4-5)
We have a lot to be grateful for this year. Yes, there are trials and disappointments--we all have one or two--but there we still have air to breath, food to eat, clothes to wear. We're growing older--and you can look on the positive or negative side of that. I choose the positive. I'm one step closer to walking hand in hand with Jesus.
Things I'm thankful for:
1. God and the grace He offers
2. My husband
3. My children and grandchildren
4. A warm house
5. Enough food
6. Warm clothing
7. A comfortable bed
8. A car that gets me where I need to go and back
9. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises
11. Freedom to worship where I want
12. Freedom to give thanks to the Lord
You can see I'm abundantly blessed, and I intend to offer thanks to the God who made me and every good thing.
Lord, You are gracious and generous. Without you, riches are nothing. With You, if I had nothing else, I'd still be rich. Thank You, precious Lord.
