Thanksgiving Transaction

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.
To Him who alone does GREAT wonders,
His love endures forever.
Who by His understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1-5 (NIV)

We can think of so many things to give thanks to God for in this season.  It is a transaction.  We don’t see it taking place but it is… As we thank God in everything, He is doing something IN us. He is transforming us, He is transitioning us, He is moving within us. ❤

“If you give Me thanks, I will give you JOY!”

What a great heavenly transaction that is happening when we do this. This is a simple exchange with Him. We give thanks unto God for His goodness and mercy. For His love endures forever. He is so wonderful to us. His love will never run out and His favor over us will never cease.

How good it is to KNOW this.

Let us take this time and give Him a grateful heart. Reflecting on the goodness of God. Reflecting on the fullness of God. Reflecting on the greatness of God. Oh HOW GOOD HE IS!

Isn’t that so wonderful to know that His goodness is going to be with us and chasing us down. I wanted to jump online this morning after prayer and share the gratitude that He has placed inside of me this special season.  A thanksgiving transaction –filled with love and joy! Filled with hope and grace. Let’s focus on who He is, what we have and who He has made us to be.  All these things are a gift to us.

May you all have a sweet holiday today gathered amongst family and friends.  Rejoice and be glad! From my heart to yours.  Let us celebrate such an awesome season today and everyday forth.  Have an amazing Thanksgiving Day!!! Be blessed.

With Love,
