Thanksgiving is a special time of year.
- For some, it brings together family and friends around the table. Others will savor delicious food, wonderful company, and make new memories. Some years, you may sit at a full table with loved ones, while other years, the holiday may feel lonely.
What makes this time of year meaningful, regardless of our situation, is that it teaches us to pause and give thanks. It is the season that we carve out time to reflect on the goodness of the year past. While some years we might feel that we have less to be thankful for than others, when we look at this holiday through a biblical lens, we begin to recognize that gratitude begins with the Lord.
I invite you to make your way through this seven-day Thanksgiving journal, which will take you through Psalm 145. This psalm teaches us about the foundation of thankfulness and serves as a humbling reminder of what Thanksgiving can really be about.
