Hello, HOPE-lovers and welcome to Thankful Thursday!

The day of Thanksgiving may have passed, but each day provides a new opportunity to grow in gratitude. So, let’s continue our encounter with thankfulness through the Psalms to discover and develop the practice of being thankful.

No sooner than dinnertime on Thanksgiving Day were we assaulted with materialism and the insatiable desire for more.  I honestly and wholeheartedly believe that if you take this pursuit seriously, your life WILL CHANGE.


Psalm 97:12

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!

Psalm 107:1, 22

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!…And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!

Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!
