Let us come before him with Thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
                                                                                ~Psalm 95:2

Thanksgiving is upon us. I’ve always loved Thanksgiving with its focus on what is most important in life. I also love that it ushers in the holiday season. The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are time for parties, friends, family, shopping and anticipation.

The holidays can be rough for single people. It can be a stark reminder of what we’re missing out on. Sometimes it’s hard this time of year to slow down and find things to be thankful for.

That’s the very reason I think we need to be more focused on our thankfulness. Rather than get caught up in whys and what ifs, we need to remember the great things the Lord has done for us. It will help us get through the holidays if we remember what this time of year is all about.

When we come before the Lord with Thanksgiving, we have the joy of knowing all the ways He has blessed us. And that joy will spill over into our celebrations and time with friends and family.
