About Holiday Manna Series
A collection of devotions written in celebration of various holidays, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter. May this holiday manna bless you!
…in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV
I can easily thank God for His benefits, for things I like and gifts I approve. For people who bless me.
But real thanksgiving is when I can say to Him and mean it:
I thank You for my enemies…
I praise You for my sorrows…
I am grateful for my failings…
I bless You for my prison…
It does say “everything.”
May our hearts today be receptive to see Him – our God in Christ Jesus – and above all our blessings, may we see what He did and gave that we may give Him thanks today for HIMSELF.
