A Thanksgiving Day Reflection 2010

A Reflection on Thanksgiving


God’s grace is a gift for which I give thanks. My life is blessed, not because I am good but because God is good and has led me in the life of faith. No matter how far I stray and walk in an opposite direction, His unfailing love acts like a magnet and pulls me back on course.

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve sat in a congregation and when they call out, “God is good” and respond by saying “all the time” then again it is called out, “all the time” and the response is “God is good” I have just sat there listening. Listening… because I didn’t “feel” that to be true. I felt it would have been more hypocritical to participate in that than to sit quietly.

The wonder of that is God knew what I was feeling and He loved me in spite of myself. He loved me when I was unlovable. He touched me when I was untouchable. He reached me when I was unreachable.

How I wish we could today sit down and share a cuppa coffee! Here we are, Cyber Friends and Sister’s in Christ having communicated through this medium of cyberspace. I wish you faith that is unwavering, love that is true and peace… The peace that passes all understanding.

Have a most wonderful time of Thanksgiving,

Tamara
