Give Thanks!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), it is once again a day that I will join with fellow believers to worship God!

Being SONday, it is the norm for me.  But, this Lord's day is a little different. 

Today, is the Sunday of our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.

Thinking ahead of time about our time of giving thanks, I thought about a song that I'm sure many of you know.

The song that flourished in my mind was by Don Moen entitled, Give Thankshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAo2iZ9vWHg

Give Thanks - Don Moen

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"
Give thanks

We give thanks to You oh Lord
We give thanks
Give thanks
Give thanks
We give thanks to You Lord 

Giving thanks is so very important.  To Him... and to us!

God told us so, in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, " In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

So, I give thanks to You!  With every part of me.  Just as You said I should do.

Do you give thanks?

Do you worship our Lord?

If you do, I am happy and grateful you do!  If not, I feel badly that you haven't yet come to the realization that God has expectations about what His children do.

And, giving thanks, and fulfilling His will is part.

If you have not yet come to Christ, and accepted Him as Lord and Saviour, please do so, today.  No one is guaranteed tomorrow.  And, tomorrow... may be too late.


Until next time...
