Deuteronomy 28:2 (King James Version)

"And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God." This is my homeschooling blog. Some days my cup runnteh over with the joys of homeschoolong, some days it's spilling what can only be be described as thinly veiled insanity. Either way, it runneth over...

Thankful Thursday- Not to Fear...





“Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!”
~ Psalm 100:3-4 (ESV)

I'm hearing a lot of fear lately in all my
communications with others. Fear over the economy, fear over leadership changes, fear over just about anything you can name at any given moment. We were not made to fear. We are his! We are made to praise. We are made to accept his love and gracious gifts to us. He made us, he loves us he saved us. All he asks in return is our love and adoration. Fear chokes that out of us. Fear cripples us. Fear keeps us from receiving blessings and love from him. How do I fight fear you ask? Oh that's the easy part...you just praise. Enter those gates singing a song of joy to him. Dance before his throne with thanksgiving--I promise not to watch :)

It truly does not matter what is happening in the banks of America. New presidents are of little importance. God is God. He is big. He is Good. Nothing escapes his attention. He is more than able to meet your every need and no man can stop him. So fear not! This IS the day the Lord of Lords has made and you have every reason to rejoice in it!

Great reminder for us and I am reminded of the song "Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice" - ALWAYS means at all times. Even when things seem fearful. Happy TT!

What a great reminder for all of us. It reminds me of a song by Steven Curtis Chapman "God is God and I am not". God is God and He knows what is best and is always with us!

Happy Thankful Thursday!
