Letter: Thanking the Lord
In Mr. Blagg’s column concerning Thanksgiving thanks he did not mention the One who gives us everything for us to give thanks. Our Lord-God, who is our Heavenly Father, supplies us with all of our needs to live on this planet that He has loaned to us to live on while we are mortal beings.
We should thank Him for supplying all of our needs. He gives us life, He keeps us safe day and night, He watches over us, He gives us ways to live our lives which brings to Him all of the glory, He leads us into safe havens when the tempest of this world rages around us, He helps, comforts and guides us as we travel life’s journey on this earth, He renews His tender mercies and loving grace each and every morning, He gives us the strength for the day and hope for tomorrow and He loves us unconditionally.
When we stray from His teachings and commandments, He punishes us, just like any good father punishes his children who disobey.
Please thank our Lord-God for all things large or small ... In Romans 8.28 it reads “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God.”
Our Lord-God has a purpose and a plan for all brought into this world. It is up to you to get together with him to find what is in store for you.
