This is a repost from 2007 Gospel.com post titled, A Thanksgiving Reflection from Gospel.com. While it might be getting old by the internet’s standards, the advice has aged well.
How can you take time to “be still” before God and reflect this Thanksgiving weekend?
As those of us living in the United States celebrate Thanksgiving today (our friends in Canada celebrate Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October), we here at Gospel.com would like to encourage all of us—no matter where we live—to take time this week to reflect on the many things for which we should be thankful.
It might be easy to call these days “uncertain times,” especially when we focus on the temporal events and concerns that bombard us each day. But God is at work in our world, and if we take the time to “be still” and look for Him, we can see that handiwork.
Our prayer this Thanksgiving is that each of us might know the reality of a living Savior, that we might have the eyes to see where He is at work in our world, and that we might have the courage to get involved where we see Him working.
May you and yours have a blessed Thanksgiving.
