“Thanks be to God who leads us, wherever we are, on his own triumphant way and makes our knowledge of him spread throughout the world like a lovely perfume!” (II Corinthians 2: 14, JB Phillips New Testament)
Happy Thanksgiving! Let’s make this day one where we are consciously aware of God and the riches of Love that He has given us. Every day should be such a day of gratitude. You are blessed each day because of what God has made you to be. You are a blessing each day because of what you consciously accept of that Truth and carry with you on your daily walk, a light shining by the abundance of God’s own light of Love.
Wherever we are, we are led by God on His triumphant way, as the quote says. It is because He is all-power, all-presence, all-consciousness, that God always wins, good always carries the day and necessarily takes us along on the victory march. We have every reason for gratitude and each moment we have an occasion to express it through our trust, our praise, our love for God and man.
God’s intention is to share the Truth of eternal Life with all creation. So, He has caused us to know Him and so to be the living witnesses to that good news. Let’s give thanks that we are the perfume that causes others to pause, to take in the beautiful aroma, and to feel with us that gratitude that is a genuine thanksgiving, a sincere awareness of the fact of God as Life and as Love.
