Today is Thanksgiving Day in the good ole USA!
We have so much to be thankful for, not just in the USA but all over the world. Some would disagree with that statement as well as this one too, “Did you wake up breathing today? Be thankful!”
Let [allow] everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Today and every day we should remove anything that attempts to deprive us of our giving God the praise that is due Him.
Donna and I are very thankful today because one week ago she underwent open-heart surgery where she successfully had triple bypass surgery at St. Vincents [SV] in Jacksonville, Florida. Sunday, November 14th she had a heart attack sitting on our couch as I was cooking us breakfast.
We are thankful for the care she received at our local hospital, especially those who labor in the Cath Lab. Donna, before retiring from the hospital, was one of the team members who helped those in cardiac crisis in the Cath Lab.
By Tuesday afternoon November 17th she was in a cardiac room at SV and as stated above on Thursday morning she underwent successful bypass surgery performed by one of the best, if not the best, cardiothoracic surgeons anywhere. His name is Dr. Mark Mostovych. Her care at SV was exceptional and we are thankful to all those who provided her excellent care.
Donna is recovering at our condo on St. Simons Island, Georgia. She is a warrior princess bride who stared her attacker and his attack in the eyes and did not flinch in her faith in the God and Father of her [our] Lord Jesus Christ. To Him be all the glory forever. Amen!
We want to thank every person who has prayed with faith believing in victory over this blatant attempt to end her life. We are eternally grateful for the many warriors who know God and who believe God and His Word.
In crises, worriers are not your friends. You want and need warriors by your side, and we have many.
Jesus expelled the worriers [faux family and friends who were powerless to do His will] and we are not interested in those who believe sympathy is the solution to undoing what the devil is doing unless they are interested in and open to moving in compassion instead of sympathy.
Sympathy sucks but the Savior saves!
Jesus was [is] moved with compassion!
There are many verses [texts] in the Bible that I could use. I am choosing the following out of Psalms 107. Enjoy!
Verse 1 – “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.”
Verse 8 – “Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men!”
Verse 15 – “Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men!”
Verse 21 – “Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men!”
Verse 31 – “Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men!”
Four of the five verses refer to the Lord’s wonders to the sons of men. The Hebrew word for wonders is pâlâ’ [paw-law’]. This word is a primitive root word meaning: to be marvelous, surpassing, extraordinary, and to separate by distinguishing action. What separates God from false gods is the wonders to the sons of men that He performs. What separates His people from other people is they also do wonders to [for the benefit of] the sons of men. Those who are not God’s people do wonders for themselves [their personal benefit]!
Give thanks to the Lord!
Receive and steward God’s passion, power, presence, priority, process, promises, protection, provision, pruning, purging, purity, and purpose!
