Giving Thanks from a Thankful Heart ! ! !

    As we seek His face, embracing and dwelling in His Presence as obedient children for He loved us first! Every day is Thanks Giving!

    Family,  Morning! This is the day, The Lord has made, and we will rejoice and be glad in it, for everyday is Thanks Giving, for He who loved us first!  As we seek His Face, embracing and dwelling in His Presence as obedient children.

    Luke 12:48, But anyone who is unaware he is doing wrong will be disciplined lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given for their responsibility is greater.  As God entrusts us with spiritual gifts for the ministry of The Kingdom of God, to shrink back or turn away from their fulfillment is very dangerous territory. 

    Luke 23:42-43, Then the thief said to Jesus, "Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom."  And Jesus said to him.  "Today you will be with Me in Paradise. This is My solemn promise."

    John 17:22-23, Jesus said, "I have given them the glory you gave Me -the glorious unity of being one, as we are-- I in them and You in Me, all being perfected into one--so  that the world will know You sent Me and will understand that You love them as much as You love Me!

    1 John 3:1, See how very much our Heavenly Father loves us, for He allows us to be called His Children-- think of it we really are! But since most people don't know God, naturally they don't understand that we are His Children. 

    In some ways it may seem as though the thief on the cross did not know who Jesus was, and yes it was more than him being remembered, as he was ushered into the, (third heaven) Paradise,(God's eternal dwelling place)! For I AM, our Creator of the world and everything in it, especially humanity, how can we not praise and thank Him, having an intimate relationship with Him, as we live and move and have our being in Him!

    May this Thanksgiving Day and every day keep us focused in our daily walks with Jesus, just as the thief on the cross acknowledged  Jesus's true identity.                See You Sunday     We Love You, L&D        Eph. 4:13
