THANK YOU… THANK YOU… With all of our hearts, we THANK YOU GOD! That’s the expression of our hearts —my wife Cindy’s and mine. All over the United States (and other parts of the world) people are gathering together. They are giving thanks for their many blessings. This is that time of year.
But actually, everyday SHOULD be Thanksgiving Day for those of us who are followers of Christ. Giving thanks should continually flow from our hearts.
Thank You God, We Pray:
“Thank you Lord God, for allowing us to participate with You in this awesome way. We feel like the boy with the two small loaves of bread and a few fish looking over the hungry multitude. It is overwhelming to imagine what we can do to help. And yet, we offer the little we have and You multiply and positively transform marriages all over the world. We stand amazed! You have taken two very ordinary people, and have grown this ministry in ways we could never have imagined possible. Thank you for your AMAZING GRACE!”
And for those of you who are reading this Thanksgiving Marriage Blog, the following is a true expression and prayer of our hearts:
“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!” (Romans 15:5-6)
Thank You God for those you bring our way.
Please know, in unison with my wife, Cindy:
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:3-6)
With your prayers, your audience, your financial gifts, your encouraging words and more, you have helped in making this ministry possible to positively effect the lives of millions every year. Thank you. From the depths of our hearts, we thank you.
We trust and believe that God is working and will continue to work in your marriages —especially, as you yield your lives to His leading and empowering.
For You, We Ask:
And like the Apostle Paul who prayed for the churches God gave him, we are “asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.” (Colossians 1:9-10)
Below is a link to one of our favorite Praise songs, Blessed Be The Name. We know it’s easy to give thanks when everything is going well in our lives, families and marriages. But we want to encourage you —even in the middle of the most severe trial you’ve ever faced —Praise Him.
No matter where you “are” right now, play the song and use it as an offering of Praise and Thanks to God for EVERYTHING He is doing in your life and have a blessed Thanksgiving! Trust Him that He will work good out of every trial that comes your way.
All we have left to say is,
“Not to us, O LORD,
not to us but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness.”
