Read and study the Word~~Matthew 4:4 “But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ “

Spend time quietly in the LORDs presence~~Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

Pray always with thanksgiving~~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Trust God’s Sovereignty in all things~~Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;  In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

Be obedient to Jesus words~~John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints– “ Ephesians 6:10-18

Giving Thanks To The “Giver of Life”

Psalm 63: 1-4 “… O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.  Because Your loving kindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You.  Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.

May your Thanksgiving Day be blessed with love of family and friends. 

Sharing a thankful heart to our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.  ~ streim

An Amazing Reality


Psalm 84:10  “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.”

” The grace of God is found in His great love for sinners, in His longing to do them good.  His Son Jesus Christ personifies grace, for by the offering up of His body, sinners are made whole and pure, once and for all” — John Bunyan

I thank you Father for the amazing reality of your grace!  As we share a time together with family and friends, let us not forget that “every day is another day to give thanks and praise to the Eternal Holy God.”
