Sony’s Thoughts: Post-Thanksgiving Admonition
Across the country, most of the Thanksgiving parties are over and life begins to get back to normal. Families return to their homes, people return to work, children resume their studies and, for housewives, they continue their menial tasks in the quietness of their home.
For some, there is often a letdown when days of activity begin to subside. Maybe a loneliness creeps in or you have time to think about the one person who was not at your gathering this year for the first time. Let me encourage you to take this time to draw near to Jesus, the One who is still with you though others may have left. In the midst of the hustle and bustle, even though I’m sure most of us took time to thank God for His blessings, it can be hard to get much quality time alone with Him but now is a great time. Thank Him for everything He did for you this week. Thank Him for the family members who may be hard to get along with but whom He is helping you to love anyway. Repent of anything you said or did this weekend which was not Godly so that you do not have that guilt carrying over with you into the next gathering. And, whatever you do, be sure to praise Him for who He is and the fact that He loves you.
Don’t stop thanking God just because the official holiday is over. He deserves our praise and attention forever and always!
