The more I learn about God, I realize how little I know. And I simply love that. God reveals Himself to me constantly through something different, through somebody unique and through newer and deeper understanding and He’s never boring yet always trustworthy. And I notice how much more He has been revealing himself to me lately and I know why. It’s my thanksgiving. The more I give thanks to Him, the more He reveals himself to me and everyday is like a Christmas morning. I can’t wait to unwrap what He has planned for me everyday.
And I pray that December never ends…that Christmas never ends…and I know it’s all up to me. As long as I keep giving thanks to Him, I’ll see His glorious and gracious sweet loving face everyday. My thanksgiving should never cease because I’m selfish and I want Christmas everyday. So here, I add one more thing to my to-do list. Don’t forget to give thanks!
