In Everything Be Thankful

Psalm 100:1-5 says, “Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is he, who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”

What an amazing scripture! The faithfulness of God is a humbling thought. Look at the past few months and see how he has looked after all the details of our lives! Thanking and praising him doesn’t mean that difficult times become easier, that problems disappear, or that good times get even better. It just means that God gives us hope through Him in every situation and that when we choose to acknowledge Him, we take on His perspective instead of our own. Be encouraged to take a minute each day, remember to bless and praise the name of the Lord, and watch Him work in and through your life!

    Thanks for reminding me to be thankful, interesting, that it is after the blog on suffering, I can’t wait to read that book! I love the worship at our church. I have meant to thank you multiple times, but haven’t. I love that the Spirit is present and we are free to raise our hands, kneel, and sing out, ( even with a not so great voice)!, I just pretend I sound like Michele S.! I really like the variety you have. I also like that MSC does not try to cater to people, like having a contemporary service, or traditional service, in regards to music, it doesn’t bring unity to the church. Thank you for blessing us each week Pastor Mike!
