God has blessed our church and our families with a wonderful year!  We have so much to be thankful for… even the things that hurt.

As we studied the book of Acts Wednesday night, it was apparent that God has a plan.  A plan for you, your family, and friends.  He (God) is large and in charge!  Yet, at the same time He is a compassionate, caring father and friend.  He knows what hurts and still uses it for His glory while protecting us. 

We can be thankful for the promises of His Word.  The promises of His care, His provision, His presence, and even the passage that, “God dwells in the thick darkness.”  So dark we can’t see Him or His plan, yet…He is There. 

Our God loves us and He is a personal God.  We have so much to be thankful for…  God is not a stone idol or a plastic Jesus on the dash of our cars.  God is a living Lord with ears to hear and hands to reach out to touch.

We are thankful for His provision, above and beyond what we can even ask. The Bible teaches us that He even hears before we call!

We are thankful for His presence.  He abides in us and we abide in Him.  Jesus is a friend that knows all about me and loves me anyway.  We have so much to be thankful for in our lives. 

We have the Lord and we have each other.  We are blessed!

There is great joy in serving Jesus, and there can be great peace in living every day for the Lord.  Don’t be afraid to give Jesus your everything.  

Pastor D.L. Moody said, “Let God have your life;  He can do more with it than you can.” 

You are loved
