It’s just a week away, my favorite holiday of the year. I know, I’m a pastor, it’s supposed to be Easter or Christmas, but there is something about Thanksgiving. It’s not just the food, although I love my mom’s pumpkin pie. It’s not the football, although I love napping and watching and napping and watching.
There is something powerful about gratitude.
The writer Paul helps us to see that it’s actually gratitude that opens the door for peace.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6–7
Thank Him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.
May you experience the peace of God this next week. May you know it, not because your circumstances change or your mother-in-law doesn’t show up, may you know it because you take the time to “set the table” for Thanksgiving by taking the time to express your gratitude for all He has done!
