Psalm 107:1-"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever."
That's what I'm most thankful for this year! That Christ's love endures, not just for today or for an hour yesterday, but FORVER!
Yesterday, Thanksgiving, all the missionaries *even non-americans:) which was more than half* got together for thanksgiving. But, before we left the house at 5 our electricity went out. hehe, nothing unusual, but it sure was hot! Anyways, we went to the Thanksgiving dinner, and then afterwards we did some Scottish Dancing! Soo fun!! But it was HOT! anyways, we got home and all really needed to take a shower! The electricity was still out, but hey, it's fine using a candle while taking a shower, but when we turned on the shower all we got was.... nothing. :( Soo, us girls and Andrew slept out in the living room where it was cooler, and around midnight the electricity turned on! PTL! But, still no water:( (we just got it back around 10...it's slowly coming out:) )
Anyways, all that made me think about how all the things in the world are so temporary! And a lot of times we rely on them instead of on God. Yah, I know, it's kinda hard to rely on water and electricity, but we do. Like 1 John 2:17a says," The world and its desires will pass away..." These things aren't gonna last!! But Christ's love DOES last! It endures through the hardest of times, or the times when we are without electricity or water, and it endures forever!!!
So, that's what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving! Thankful for God pouring out His love on us unworthy sinners, sending His Son to die so that through His death and resurrection we might be pardoned from our sins and cleansed within! So that we may live eternally with Christ, worshipping God forever and ever!
