Thanksgiving in Our Hearts

Thanksgiving in our hearts

As we draw close to Thanksgiving, with uncertainty, stress, and trials, it can be hard to carry the spirit of thanksgiving in our hearts.

Utilizing the following verses, from both the Old and New Testaments, you can make a 14-day reading plan of one each day. Read, meditate, write down each verse, and then do as each verse says. Even if all you can do is just confess the verse. This act of committing ourselves to the praise and thanksgiving of our Lord will bring a measure of peace to our lives and to those around us.
