THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Young Simon was sitting in his grandmother's kitchen, watching her prepare the Thanksgiving meal.
“What are you doing?” Simon enquired.
“Oh, I'm just stuffing the turkey,” his grandmother replied.
“Wow, that's cool.” Simon remarked. “Are you going to hang it on the wall next to the deer?”
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Back in the late 1700's, a wagon train had experienced great difficulties.
Most of the wagons had broken down several times.
The cattle were all very lean from lack of grazing grass.
Tempers were high, optimism was gone, and courage was weak.
The men called a meeting to discuss the problems.
Gathered 'round the campfire that evening, one of them said,
"Before we begin, let us thank God we haven't been attacked, and that we are still able to move forward."
After the brief prayer, there was silence!
No one stated any problems!
As we gather in families today, let us thank God for His blessings.
Our day will be filled with peace.
"Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul,
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole;
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free. "
