Happy Thanksgiving (No Women's Meeting this week) - November 25, 2011

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name."

We do not have a meeting this week however please ladies take the time to listen to this message: What it Means to be Thankful http://onelove.org/Media/Player.aspx?media_id=1000018100&file_id=1000020683

Suggested Readings!
Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Read Philippians 4:6
Read Colossians 2:6-7
Read Psalms 68:19
Psalm 95:2 says to come before the presence of the Lord with what?
When giving thanks to God, we should make known what? 1 Chronicles 16:8
According to 1 Chronicles 16:34 we should give thanks to the Lord because…. He is ___________ and His ____________ endureth forever.

“When things are going as we want, we can easily be thankful. However, when things aren’t going so good, it’s hard. But we can still have an attitude of thanksgiving towards God no matter the situation.”

Thanksgiving in Action!
Take time to “live your Thanksgiving” and call or visit someone who is alone or having a hard time on this holiday.
Volunteer at a shelter or nursing home.
Make an extra pie and give it to a family who doesn’t have one.
Make a list of all of the things you are blessed with. Then ask yourself what can you give back to God?

Let’s pray and praise with thanks-giving, not just on the holiday but every day of the year!

“Let’s not stop counting our blessings or dwelling on things that we should appreciate. In spite of everything negative that may be going on in our life, let’s be sure that gratitude is consistently overflowing from our life.”
