What are You Most Thankful For This Thanksgiving?

I have made many mistakes in my life. I walked on my own with my back to God for many years yet, He never left my side. I ignored His teachings and His desires for me. How alone I truly was. I am so very grateful for God opening my eyes to Him and showing me that He is the way, the truth and the life. No other! Thank you Jesus Christ for saving such a lost soul like me. I was reminded of my mistakes yesterday in a meeting I was required to attend. I was reminded of my past, apart from God. Not a comfortable experience by any stretch of the imagination. Yet, even in the discomfort of this talk I know God was with me. He sat with me and went over all these things. The peace that I felt during this was amazing. Jesus had my back the whole time. Thank you Lord! Looking into God’s word there are so many times where we are commanded to thank Him…
