Giving Thanks in 2010

On Sundays I write on Spirituality & Faith.  I do it because I believe we’re all spiritual beings and have a moral compass in our lives.  You can learn more by clicking here.

This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., so I thought I’d share a scripture of thanksgiving today, taken from 1 Chronicles 29:10-13:

David blessed God in full view of the entire congregation:
Blessed are you, God of Israel, our father
from of old and forever.
To you, O God, belong the greatness and the might,
the glory, the victory, the majesty, the splendor;
Yes! Everything in heaven, everything on earth;
the kingdom all yours! You’ve raised yourself high over all.
Riches and glory come from you,
you’re ruler over all;
You hold strength and power in the palm of your hand
to build up and strengthen all.
And here we are, O God, our God, giving thanks to you,
praising your splendid Name. (1 Chronicles 29:10-13, The Message)

What a beautiful reminder that everything we see in the universe, everything we have, everything we are, and everything we can be, belongs to God and is a gift from Him to us.

I try to live my life with an attitude of gratitude every day, not just Thanksgiving Day, thanking God for the gifts He’s given me.  What about you?

  1. Yes, absolutely. We need to speek out our gratefulness. And we should be aware that God is in all of us and that we are all one.
