A Thanksgiving Message to the Hurting

While many of us are spending time with family and find it easy to rejoice today, others are struggling with financial hardship, loss of a loved one, grief, divorce, separation from family due to COVID-19 restrictions, etc. This has been a tough year. Reach out to someone you know today who is struggling. Days like this remind me of why the Scripture says IN everything give thanks not FOR everything give thanks. Even if you are struggling with giving thanks at all, God longs to meet with you in your struggle. Pour out your heart to Him today and allow Him to begin the healing of your heart.

Sending love and prayers this Thanksgiving!

  1. Amen. Your point is important, pastor. That’s right, “The gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.” You are still a pastor!
    My wife tested positive for COVID this past Monday, so I have been doing the cooking and cleaning while she is isolating herself in a different part of the house. In fact, I “cooked” Thanksgiving dinner today. What a stretch!
    Anyway, God’s richest blessings to you, brother.
