“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
We officially celebrate Thanksgiving this week, but thanksgiving should be our default setting as Christians.
My mind wandered this week to the song “For All These Things,” sung by Twila Paris and Wintley Phipps on the album “Savior” almost 20 years ago. I can’t find the audio, or a YouTube video with it, so I’ll share the first verse with you.
From ransomed men of tender heart
Whose souls You taught to sing
Your children lift their voice to You
With thanks for all these things
From mountain heights and vaulted skies
Your hand is clearly seen
We cast our praise with nature’s cry
To God, for all these things
Our list of things to thank God for never, ever ends. For all these things–innumerable blessings–Father, we give you thanks!
Happy Thanksgiving Week, and have a wonderful Sunday!
