“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.” (Psalms 100: 4)
To know the glories of God’s household, we must enter with a gift. This gift is not a sacrifice of some material possession nor is it some religious ritual. It is a heart full of gratitude. To know the fullness of God, we must love Him, recognize this available fullness and goodness, and begin our worship with thanksgiving for our big blessings.
To enumerate personal gifts we have and to at the same time repeat or be conscious of personal lacks, is not a true gratitude. We must come to God’s table already full, already overflowing with that awareness that we are in a holy place always, on every day of the year, because we are always family at God’s table, always the recipients of the best of everything in abundance, freely.
Our Father-Mother has never failed to carve out a perfect life for us. We are not waiting for a single good thing. The goodness in our lives is not confined to what our limited senses can see. The glory of God is infinite and eternal. Right now and always we are compassed about with all the Love there is. Truth always actively fills every corner. The law of God’s Principle is always supporting us, and Life is always expressing itself fully and vitally as our very being. We are surrounded by and full of God’s substance– perfect good–at all times. Gratefully accept this spread, and claim it. When we do this, we can’t help but be absolutely satisfied and honestly, genuinely, fully thankful.
A very, very Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
