11.22.12 "Happy Thanksgiving"

The blog for today will be abbreviated due to the fact that it is a holiday and our bloggers are spending time with their families.  Here is the scripture for today!  It is a powerful section that calls us to deep thanks and gratitude in all circumstances.   Remember Jesus invites us into the practice of gratitude "in" all circumstances even though we are not thankful "for" all circumstances.  Enjoy the freedom that "be thankful in all circumstances" ushers into your life!

1 Thessalonians 5 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each otherand for everyone else. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil.23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

Happy Thanksgiving!
