Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving rejoicing in the many gifts our Lord Jesus has blessed us with.
I read these verses today and felt very encouraged and uplifted in my heart.
I hope they do the same for you!

"Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, and gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west from the north and from the south." Psalm 107:1-3

"Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven. Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people, and praise Him in the company of the elders." Psalm 107:28-32

What a blessing to be reminded of Jesus redeeming us from sin and death and how He hears our cries of distress. Even my small worries and fears He hears and calms and shows me His promises of guiding me to my "desired haven." No matter how many times I read it I still am amazed that God hears my prayers - no matter how small or silly the matter may seem to me. It's with joy that I can say with the Psalmist " O give thanks to the Lord for He is good; for His mercy endures forever!"
