Thanksgiving Praise

Thanksgiving Praise

November 27, 2019

“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High.” Psalm 92:1

Today I am thankful:

* That Creator God does not change and that He does not let me make decisions that only He is capable of making.

* That God is not willing that anyone would miss out on spending forever with Him; anyone who will not be there has decided to refuse His free Gift of Grace in Savior Jesus.

* That I have the privilege of living in the USA; it is not perfect, but there is no other place I want to live.

* That a lot of people have been patient with me over many years – and still are.

* That I have enjoyed 54 years of marriage to Carol, with whom at one time I thought I could not even get a date!

* That I have been privileged to be in church ministry for 50 years; it is a gift to do every day what really does not feel like work.

* That there is one book, the Bible, that still tells the Story of Jesus; knowing Him brings life eternal.

* That I do not have to find answers to life questions that seem to have no answers; it just shows that God is God and I am not.

* That I enjoy what God has promised if we seek Him – food, clothing and shelter; and that the homeless might experience some of this during the holidays because people care.

* That the church founded by Jesus has endured the test of time and will continue until He comes back for it.

* That freedom from the penalty of sin also brings the power to overcome daily sins so that life can be filled with peace and contentment.

* That one day I will not write a “Thanksgiving Praise” but will express it in person to Savior Jesus.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Pastor Bill Ehmann

Did Jesus Feel Confined?

May 20, 2020 It feels strange, almost wrong, for me to ask this question: How could the Creator and Controller of the universe be held in captivity by it? I hope I am not dabbling in something inappropriate, but this […]
