11 Days Left!

Alright...what am I thankful for? Well first of all I am so extremely thankful for the opportunity to know, worship, serve, and love the God of the entire universe who loves us so dearly. I like to think about how awesome it is that we are given the chance to know Him. Just think we pray and sometimes hear the voice of the same God who spoke with Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, David and all the other marvelous followers of Christ in the Bible. Of course that's not what matters but it's just fun and amazing to think of this. What's important though is that He wants to talk, know, and take care of us. He is giving us the chance to follow Him. Just think of one of your hero's. Ok I assume you are thinking of one now....what would you do if that person said," Come follow me and be my friend and I will give you an amazing place to live beyond all your wildest dreams." Well I don't know about you but I would certainly be tempted. We need to have that same excitement about God. I know sometimes it's hard to have the same enthusiastic attitude about following God as you have when keeping up with one of your hero's, but we should definitely have the same attitude. We should be ashamed when we feel this way. I know I do. So today Lord will you forgive me when I foolishly feel this way? I know we all falter and loose enthusiasm but I am going to do my utmost best to thank you for all I have and to follow you and read your word without complaining.
Here are some scripture about giving thanks. Psalms 75:1 which talks of men praising the wonderful deeds of the Lord, Psalms 136 ...while you read it you become amazed at what all God has done for us over the years, 1 Chronicles 16:8 again this reinforces how much we need to praise His name and let it be know how He has blessed us.
