Verse of the week - Psalm 118:1

Psalm 118:1 says, "Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting."

During various seasons in life we have abundantly obvious reasons to give thanks, and other times we feel void of thankfulness.

Yet, our thankfulness should not change based on our external circumstances. Our thankfulness springs from the goodness of God. And, his goodness and love toward us are everlasting.

When my gratitude flickers it more likely comes from a personal emotion or harbored sin, not because God has changed in His expression of love for us.

This week, I seek to give thanks, because God is good -- all the time.

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting


~Psalm 118:1~

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I will be taking a little break this week as we catch up on some school work for the first few days and then cram in some extra time with family during the later part of the week. Praying that your heart will overflow with thankfulness this week.
