Thanksgiving message



Happy Thanksgiving to our gospel music family

Philippians (NIV) 4: 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

"Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever." (Psalm 106:1)

It is a blessing to reflect on what the first thanksgiving celebration was really all about.  Just as it is today, it focused on praises to God! The Pilgrims that landed at Plymouth Rock celebrated thankfully in reverence to God who they credited with their blessings and their hardships.   Giving thanks is the way to find peace in our hearts because when we are truly thankful to God, we are expressing our trust in Him.

During our celebrations with family and friends, may we say a special prayer for our military personnel and their families. Let us also remember those experiencing so many dire circumstances today, including the sick, the bereaved, the homeless, those who experienced storms, floods, fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and other catastrophes. We pray for strength for them to endure as they attempt to rebuild their lives.  May we have the gift of sharing in our hearts and recognize those less fortunate in ways that we are able to do.

There is nothing greater than the prayer of giving sincere thanks and praises to God. We are living in a blessed nation and proudly worship our Creator. Thanks be to God!

Thanksgiving Day is the perfect opportunity to remind all of you how special you are to The Harvesters and how much you mean to us. “Blest be the ties that bind our hearts in Christian love.”

 Have a Blessed Thanksgiving,

 Danny, Allen, Mark, Tommy
