Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God and keep the vows you made to the most high.
Giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me.
November is a month when thoughts turn towards thankfulness. Last year I practiced thanksgiving by glimpsing the goodness in each day and sharing it on the blog.
I came across this passage in Psalms during October’s reading. I was struck by the fact that thankfulness and the giving of thanks is called a God-honoring sacrifice. It’s not just a feeling, though this is a tricky thing for me who has worked hard to find my feelings.
This November sacrificial thanks is the theme that has emerged. I hope to spend time intentionally giving thanks, even when it is hard or uncomfortable. Especially when it is hard and uncomfortable. When it is a sacrifice to give thanks or feel thankful for the life I have been given to live.
I hope to post thoughts and observations on sacrificial thanks this month leading up to Thanksgiving. I invite you to ponder, as well, the places where your thanks is a sacrifice offered to God in obedience and how you will glorify him through the hard stuff that we all experience.
