Thank You, Lord

For those of you who decide to celebrate Thanksgiving, take time to remember and give thanks to God for providing and protecting and loving you. Remember to pray for those who have yet to experience the awesomeness of God or those who may have rejected them, that they may come back to Christ in time to for the gift of salvation.

1 Thessalonians 5: 16-23 “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Made A Way

This young man is 15 years old, praising God with a song with lyrics that describe a testimony every single follower of Christ can attest to. Think about those difficult circumstances in your life, even the ones you thought got the better of you – Are you still standing? Are you still living and breathing and covered with God’s grace and mercy? That is because He made a way for you, even when we turn our backs on Him – He still wants the best for us all. Only the love of God can make that possible, only He can move mountains and cause walls to fall and we have no idea how He does it, but aren’t you grateful? Are you not humbled? Are you not blessed??

This young is pouring out his heart to God, and we may not know why but we have every reason to be like him. We have every reason to give God all the praise and all the worship.

You made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because You made a way
You made a way

Deuteronomy 10:21: He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.

Ephesians 3:20-21: Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
