What am I thankful for?

Thanksgiving is one of the most underappreciated and misunderstood of all holidays. For most people, Thanksgiving is time for watching football, dry turkey, getting an early start on Christmas shopping, and obligatory time spent with family members who we don’t choose to see any other time of the year. All of those are good elements of the holiday. But, if you are a follower of Jesus, there are some even better reasons to be thankful this year!

In Psalm 103:1-5, there are 5 big things to be thankful for!

1. For God!

Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name.

2. For the Good Things He brings me!

Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me.

Where would I be without him?

3. For Forgiveness and Health!

He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.

4. For Saving Me!

He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.

5. For Satisfaction and Strength!

He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
