Reasons to Say Thank You to the Lord!
When we enjoy good health, a profitable job, or a loving family, we say God has blessed us. Does this mean God is only on the side of the successful? Can’t these “successes” simply be the result of hard work or being born rich? They can.
How about those who work vigorously and see only a few results? What about the poor in health, or families who live a daily existence that is less than “picture perfect?” Does God not bless them too?
Of course, the answer is simple. God creates the rich and the poor, those in good health and those in pain equally. He wants everyone with Him in Heaven. God just blesses all. He never asks what our nationality is or if we are a refugee or anything except How can I help you be more than you are right now? And then God simply does it. No hassle! No strings! Just hugs and blessings.
God loves all equally, and promises all the same reward. His only request is that we love him in return. Through all those we meet along our paths. In thanksgiving for God loving us so easily, God says to each of us: “Do the same to those you meet along your journey.
Once God calls, He never abandons. Our gracious God continuously pours his blessings on our lives until we are with Him forever. And He expects us to Live Jesus and do likewise.
A Thanksgiving Thought from St. Francis de Sales:
“Never does our God leave us save to hold us better; never does He let go of us save to keep us better; never does He wrestle with us, save to give Himself up to us and bless us.”
A Thought from Ephesians 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, just as he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before him in love.
Happy Thanksgiving to all My Readers
