‭‭Happy Thanksgiving! As we celebrate, let us remember why we mark this day as special: God’s blessings to us. Our scripture this morning is Psalm‬ ‭107:1‭-‬6‬.

[1]  Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! [2] Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble [3] and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. [4] Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in; [5] hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them. [6] Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.

“His steadfast love endures forever.” This is God’s promise, that He will always be available and accessible to us. All we have to do is go to Him in prayer. While He already knows everything we need, prayer makes us part of the process.

This psalm tells us that God gathers His people “from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.” No one is excluded from His love, no matter where they are. God is always ready to welcome back His children.

The last verse in this passage reminds us to call on God when we are in trouble. However, we also need to raise our voices in prayer and thanks in good times for all He has done for us. Through it all, God is present with us, now and forever.

Loving Lord, we are thankful for all Your many blessings. We ask forgiveness for our failings and strength to share the Good News everywhere. Amen.
