Don’t Overlook It

Don’t Overlook It

By Pastor Dennis Morales

"Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever"  Psalm 118:29

Holiday mode is officially starting to kick in.  I can already taste my mother in love’s famous Yams.  But, I personally feel like I just packed up the Christmas lights!  As I shop in the local stores, it already feels like Christmas (minus our June weather of course).  You may feel inclined to start searching for the box of decorations, to start preparing shopping lists, or even get busy with planning the family gathering.  Or maybe you have endured a loss or are experiencing difficulty and your “heart just doesn’t seem to be in it” this year.  You may be in a position where you feel it’s just too hard to find things to be thankful for.  It’s no wonder why Thanksgiving can often be overlooked.   I’m reminded of a comic strip that read “Thanksgiving should come AFTER Christmas, then we’d have more things to be thankful for.”     But we are to remember that, “God is good” (Psalm 118:29).  We are also reminded biblically to bring praise (thanks) to the Lord “continuously” because He is always with us, especially when times are tough (Isaiah 43:2).  Whether we are busy or experiencing difficulty, we are reminded to be thankful.  Sometimes being thankful will involve sacrifice.  The Bible says “Therefore by Jesus,let us continually offer the [sacrifice] of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name” (Hebrews 13:29).  Regardless of circumstances, remember not to overlook the reasons to voice to God your thanksgiving.
