THANKSGIVING - ENJOY, DON'T FRET!
Updated: Dec 5, 2022
"Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life." (Philippians 4:6-7 MSG)
Remember, it's about giving thanks and being thankful. And it's about spending time with family and friends. So don't let the preparation stress you out! Enjoy the moments and create priceless memories.
"And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ's] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always." (Colossians 3:15 AMPC)
"Thank God! Call out his Name! Tell the whole world who he is and what he’s done! Sing to him! Play songs for him! Broadcast all his wonders! Revel in his holy Name, God-seekers, be jubilant! (I Chronicles 16:8-9 MSG)
"Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He’s actively cleaning house, torching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is Fire!" (Hebrews 12:28-20 MSG)
"O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!" (I Chronicles 16:34 AMPC)
"Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord, At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father." (Ephesians 2:19-20 AMPC)
"Come, let’s shout praises to God, raise the roof for the Rock who saved us! Let’s march into his presence singing praises, lifting the rafters with our hymns!" (Psalm 95:1-2 MSG)
I hope you all have a Wonderful, and Happy Thanksgiving!
Be Encouraged! ❤
