In Thanksgiving

Psalm 9: 1-2 “ I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O most high.”

I want you to search your heart and truthfully admit to yourself if you feel blessed? Are you truly grateful for all that you have in your life? Or, do you selfishly feel you deserve more?

These are hard questions that we all need to think about. I had experienced these emotions of feeling upset with failed relationships in regards to not having my biological family love me the way they should. This led me down a path of feeling sorry for myself and wanting something that emotionally was not possible. You can’t make people Love you, it’s not possible.

I overcame this self pity by looking back at my life and seeing how far I have come. Realizing that Jesus loves me and that I needed to Love myself. That loving myself was key to how I allowed other people to treat me. I needed to believe that I was valuable and worthy of love.

Today I truly am grateful for all the Lord has done in my life. I will tell of his wonderful deeds and praise his mighty name.

Dear Jesus,

I lift up all the people who are suffering and hurting from lack of Love. People who so desperately need you but have not yet found you. I pray for them to come to know you. You are the only one who can fill their hearts with overflowing love. Amen.
