Thanksgiving more than a Holiday

1 : the act of giving thanks
2 : a prayer expressing gratitude
3 a : a public acknowledgment or celebration of divine goodness

We celebrate Thanksgiving day in the month of November here in the US and there are many festivities connected to this day. It is also highly commercialized.

When we put all of that aside there is power in having a spirit of Thanksgiving.

We are conditioned by media, society, our environment, friends etc. to want more and more. You may spend all of your life trying to keep up with the Jones. This leads to anxiety, overwhelm, possibly fear and low self esteem.

When you embrace a spirit of Thanksgiving you recognize the many reasons to be grateful for.

Your vision is clear and you are open to receive witty ideas and inventions such as is mentioned in the bible about Gods ability to influence our lives.

Your health is greatly enhance due to less stress and side effects of worry.

Yes, I truly enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday and time shared with family, however, Thanksgiving is more than a Holiday.

Extend your focus on Thanksgiving beyond the Holiday. Empower yourself through the act of thanksgiving, a prayer of an expression of gratitude and of course giving a public display of celebration for Divine goodness.

Keep a gratitude and prayer journal. Journal at least 2 -3 things you’re grateful for daily. Journal your prayer experience.

Here’s to your Healthy, Wealthy and Joyous life of Thanksgiving!

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

I Thessalonians 5:18
