* “Congress recommends a day of…thanksgiving and praise so that the people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts…and join…their prayers that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, to forgive our sins and…to enlarge His kingdom which consists in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
– Continental Congress, 1777
As we give thanks to God we acknowledge that He is our source of provision and life. And it also opens to us the blessings of God to come upon us. When we pray before eating we are not asking/saying the blessing. We are giving thanks to God for His blessing in our lives. May you be blessed today and all season long. Whatever you do today, hanging out with family and friends around a feast, watching football or going shopping, remember,you are a blessing someone gives thanks for! HaPpY ThAnKsGiViNg!!!
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Colossians 3:17 (NKJV)
Thank God, Eat turkey, Watch football, Shop, Repeat
