Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 (ESV)
As Christians we have so much to be thankful for but for me personally I am most grateful to serve a God who promises to always be with me.
Because this life and everything in it is temporary; things break or get lost, wealth can be fleeting and people leave (by either death or choice). Life’s fabric can feel like it’s fraying around us and we are clinging to find the one string that is safe to hold on to . . . only to sense it slowly slipping through our fingers as well.
But, He will never fail. He cannot lie. And so we can with confidence say, He will never leave us.
That is the core of my thankfulness. The Creator of the universe who reaches down and says to me, “Daughter, I am here. Come sit at my feet as I whisper into your ear and gently touch your soul with my love.” His Spirit fills me, invites me, and pursues me.
When family and friends fail, when the storms of life roll over me, when money is scarce and my accuser says to me, “You have no hope,” I will not despair. For I know I am not alone. In Him and with Him I have a hope and a love that is eternal.
Take the whole world, but give me Jesus. He is my All in all. Anything else is just gravy. Speaking of gravy, pass the turkey . . .
Father, we thank you for the gift of your Son and all the provisions that you give. Help us to not only show our gratitude when the season prompts us to, but to be thankful for each and every day that you walk with us. Amen!
