To Be Thankful is ...
To listen for one's heart , then meet them where they are
by opening your heart to let the love of God shine through ...
to follow God's leading in meeting one's true need.
For those overcome in spiritual battle, to take their place on the battlefield as their intercessor.
To not make judgement by what is seen or heard, neither by word or deed, but by the Spirit of God, who looks upon the heart ... as the Spirit cannot lie.
To be willing to be the person in the forefront, learning how to overcome Satan, that one might be prepared to help others in time of need.
To Be Thankful is, in all the ways Jesus has loved us, to multiply his
This Thanksgiving Season, let us give Him true 'Thanks'.
The purpose of this series is to encourage people to live as loving, compassionate, and peacemaking children of God: Jesus tells us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10) God tells us through Micah (6:8), "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God." And we know from Revelation 21:4 that there will be no more mourning, or crying, or pain, or death. Thus, Christian living requires us to set the standards of these conditions here on earth for our fellow human beings, and for the other animals, as a witness to the rest of the world. To do otherwise is not Christian.
