November Devotions

Every November millions of Americans celebrate Thanksgiving.  It is the busiest travel time of the year as friends and family gather together in celebration of the blessings of another year.

Other countries celebrate a day of thanksgiving at other times but the importance of a day set aside to count one’s blessings is not lost on Christians and non-Christians alike.

Christians have much to be thankful for.  There are the normal blessings of life but even more so, there is our forgiveness in Jesus Christ and our assurance of eternal life.

These devotions focus on what it means to be thankful and some of the specific things that we as Christians should be thankful for.  In truth, we can never thank God enough for everything He has done for us.

Sometime during this month, take a few moments and write down something that you are thankful for, one thing for every letter of the alphabet.  They can be really simple things that you’d miss if you lived in a world without them.  I’ll get you started…
