THURSDAY THANKS

We will enter His gates with thanksgiving in our hearts then into His courts with praise!
Finally, we’ll worship Adonai in the Holy of Holies.
It all starts with thanks.

“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

“To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.” Psalm 30:12

My Christmas is Changed ~ Forever!

My Christmas is Changed ~ Forever!

“My Christmas is ruined forever! Doesn't anybody care I’m hurting? If God loves me so much, why did He take my loved one? At Christmas time? And you want me to be thankful? You’re joking—right? ” I’ve heard these words. I’ve said these words, and I’ve thought these...
