Thanksgiving Is Not Just A Holiday


Thanksgiving 2020

It's An A Atititude of Thankfulness And Gratitude

This year, Thanksgiving may be different due to the current pandemic. You may be staying at home or hosting a smaller gathering than normal.  Nonetheless, what is not different is why we celebrate Thanksgiving, which is to be thankful and show our gratitude for what we have.  One of the best things about thankfulness is that the more you choose it, the easier it gets. The more you profess gratitude, the more you notice things to be grateful for. Psalms 100: 4-5 reads, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise, give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”


This scripture prompts us to show our gratitude and thankfulness, because God is worthy of our thanksgiving.  When we are thankful, our focus moves off our own desires and pain of our current situations.  Expressing thankfulness helps us to remember that God is in control and reminds us that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing.  Ephesians 1:3 states, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” So, let’s remember, Thanksgiving is not just a holiday, but it’s an attitude of thankfulness and gratitude that we can practice every day.
