He has blessed me with a home that I love and cherish. I have a wonderful family, loving children, and a pastor and church family that surpasses all expectations. I have friends and co-workers aplenty! He has blessed me with good health, enough money to pay my bills, a new car, and great job and generous employer. I have been given a right mind, a clean heart, the ability to love and to forgive. I have the joy of the Holy Ghost in my soul and most importantly I know His name...Jesus! The only name given whereby we MUST be saved!
I am thankful to live in America for even at its worst it is a thousand times better than living anywhere else! With all of our imperfections, we still have freedom - to laugh, to pray, to be thankful or to grumble...whatever we want. I am not afraid to walk out of my house, to fall asleep in my bed, of tomorrow and what it may (or may not) hold.
I am grateful for my heritage. For being an American citizen, for being a Maxwell by birth, for being a Christian, a child of God. I could have been born at any time in any country to any parents, but God put me HERE, and for that, I give Him all the honor and praise. He has been so good to me.
Of all the things I am thankful for, I am most thankful that He knows my name. He knew me before I was. The great I AM made sacrifices for me thousands of years before I was even to be, and then he left His holy WORD as a guide, a lamp post, a path, a landmark.
How could I NOT be thankful?
