give Thanks

give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures for ever!

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to him.

In God we have boasted continually,
and we will give thanks to thy name for ever.

Selah

As we enter this season of Thanksgiving—with the world around us growing darker every hour—let us pause and give Thanks for the wonderful blessing of God in our lives. And, may we always rejoice

 See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to all.  Rejoice always,  pray constantly,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.__1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
