Today is thanksgiving here in Canada. What a great day to reflect on all the blessings that we have. If I just think even for a minute of all that I am thankful for my list gets very long....and that's not even a fraction of all I am thankful for!
In school devotions the kids and I have been reflecting on our relationship with God. In this study I have become so incredibly thankful for a God who desires to have a relationship with me!!! This is so amazing to my little mind. The God of the universe, the God who created everything, the God who measures the distance of the heavens with the span of His hand, the God who keeps the universe running in perfect order.....this God loves me!!!! Wow!!! If that isn't enough to be jumping up and down with thanks in my heart, I don't know what is!!!
And this God desires to have a relationship with me. James 4:8 says "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." All I have to do is make an effort to get to know God, to know what He loves, know what He hates, desire to spend time with Him and read His Word, obey Him and He promises that He will draw near to me! WOW....what an amazing promise....what an amazing God.
So today I find myself not just thanking God for all the physical things I have and all the relationships He has given me, but mostly for a God Who loves me so much that He desires a relationship with ME!!! A God, Who's power I hear in the thunder, cares about the little things in my life. A God Who gave His Son for me so that I could have eternal life.
How could I not be thankful today? How could I not be thankful every day!!!!
GOD I THANK YOU!!!!!
