A Psalm of Thanksgiving.
Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.
I have decided to officially declare that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. (Until next month when Christmas is suddenly my favorite)
We were talking to some friends of ours about the importance of being in a church with good spiritual covering; a church with fertile soil. I’m not sure they are really hearing us or maybe they aren’t “getting it” because they still are not getting plugged into at a church. There were some excuses voiced during this discussion. One of them was, “I have to work on Sundays”. Great we have a Saturday service. Then I began to share our experience.
Dennis and I have been attending Promiseland San Marcos for over a year. When we first started, Dennis had the worst schedule. He worked every Saturday and his shift was noon to 9:00 p.m. At the time we were attending small group at the Dean’s house in Kyle (my family). We asked the small group to agree with us in prayer for a shift change for Dennis. Over this past year, Dennis has had a shift change, two raises, hit commission for 8 months in a row and been 2nd highest sales in his division. That’s GOD! Even though my job at Dell ended (contract completed), we never missed a meal (obviously). Now I have a good job in San Marcos (no more driving fro almost 2 hours every day). God has blessed us in so many ways!
Today, I am thankful for a very good church that is rooted in the Word, is good soil for sowing, and is good covering.
