Thankful

28 Nov

Here is a short list of things I am thankful for:

1. My wonderful wife
2. Loving family
3. The privilege of attending Birmingham Theological Seminary
4. My Church Family (in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois)
5. The giftings God has blessed me with, and have been able to use in service to Him and my neighbor
6. The opportunity I have to coach wrestling
7. God’s faithful provision of food, work, money, and friends in all situations

Among all the things I am thankful for on this Thanksgiving day are these words of promise from God’s Word through the prophet Isaiah:

Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness abide in the fruitful field.  And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever. My people will abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. (Isaiah 32:16-18)

Praise God that these things have been accomplished by Christ and have been, are being, and will be applied/fulfilled through Him.  Though all the things I mentioned above good and should be remembered, nothing can rise above my thankfulness for God’s gracious salvific work in my life, and the promises like this one above that are true for all those found in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Happy Thanksgiving!
