Tag Archives: Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is around the corner!

We are only 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving! For me a time to reflect back to all the things the Lord has done for my family and friends through out the year and whole heartedly take some time to express gratitude to The Lord God Almighty!                             Of-course the big dinner with friends and family!!!

  1. Every year I am thankful for my salvation : where would I be without Jesus? Romans 10:9-10
  2. Every year I am thankful for the word of God that lives in me : Galatians 2:20
  3. This year I am thankful for my wonderful husband and children, I really fell blessed to have the best
  4. This year I am also thankful for the e-bay business that I pursued, I wish I had started this a long time ago, but God’s time is the best. As a mother to an infant and a toddler 18 months apart, being able to bring income into the home while staying at home has been a blessing. I will write a separate blog about my eBay business.

Matthew 6:33, one of my favorite scriptures says seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you! My simplest understanding of this scripture is that God is saying when you put Him first, He will work out everything else for you, including our fleshly desires, a job, a husband, a wife, money, a house, a car, You name it!

This year I have definitely seen an increase in my familys’ spiritual growth, and I thank God for that. I find myself being able to understand and explain His word, something I struggled with for a very long time. To read the bible and get revelation is heaven for me!
So I just want to encourage someone who might have tried reading the bible and not understood, continue to read: God sees your heart and He is faithful, He can even send someone to explain that one scripture you struggle with, Feed your spirit with the word, receive it with faith and revelation knowledge will follow. His word says ” If any of you lacks wisdom, you should  Ask!!! God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. So He definitely wants you to have that wisdom, but you have to ask 🙂

So as you prepare your hearts to thank Him, don’t forget to daily feed your spirit with His word.
