Monday is Day 27 of the Season of Thankfulness. I hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving Day celebration with family and friends. You have much to thank God for. Think about it and then thank the Lord.

Even if everything is not like what you want it to be, give thanks to God anyway. My family had to celebrate the unexpected homegoing services of my respected and loved 38 year old cousin who died of an asthma attack on Saturday, two days after Thanksgiving Day . Imagine the broken hurts of his parents and his brand new wife. Lord have mercy. Yet we gave thanks to God for strength and comfort. He still is a good God.  We are praying for his parents and his wife of three weeks.

God’s command is “In every thing give thanks”; and the command is emphasized by the declaration, “for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thess. 5:18, KJV). It is an actual positive command. If we want to obey God, we have simply got to give thanks in everything. There is no getting around it.

Sometimes we have to Hallelujah anyway! What does that mean? We must believe God is blessing us always, and we must be thankful at all times.  Instead of blaming God and complaining when things go wrong, thank God anyway. Believe that God will turn a tragedy into a triumph. It does not mean you understand the occurrence, don’t hurt and that you don’t cry. It means you will still have a thankful heart and praise the Lord.

At the funeral services over 20 persons came to the altar to  give their hearts to the Lord and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Hallelujah!

O give thanks unto the Lord! Call upon His name; make known his deeds among the people!(1 Chronicle16:8-10) No matter what the circumstance give thanks that you have a prayer hearing God, that has unfamthonable love for and that you are more than a conqueror.

God’s command is “In every thing give thanks”; and the command is emphasized by the declaration, “for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thess. 5:18, KJV). It is an actual positive command. If we want to obey God, we have simply got to give thanks in everything. There is no getting around it.

Day 26 Brag on God for His love and His loving kindness to you. Brag on Him for who is He is. “I praise You because You are a loving God, whose very nature is love”. (1 Jn 4:16)
Think, about His goodness. Praise Him. Thank Him and tell what your are thankful for. Open your mouth and tell it. Think and Thank. #BragonGod #ThinkandthankGod
“Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! Ps. 107:21
“And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving and rehearse His deeds with shouts of joy and singing! Ps 107: 22.
