Thanksgiving has been celebrated as a federal holiday in the United States every year since 1863, when, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens," to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November.
Psalm 9:1 says, “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.”
No matter what challenges we face, there’s so much to be thankful for. This is the season that we usually take time to reflect on our many blessings.
How has the Lord blessed you?
What mighty things has the Lord done for you?
How will you celebrate this holiday season? What traditions have you and your family established so that you will always remember God’s goodness?
Praise Him and commit to Him that you will never forget the amazing things He has done for you.
Be blessed because the Lord has blessed you to be a blessing to others!
