Thankfulness

An Active Faith – Matthew Henry

Thanksgiving Draws Our Hearts to God – Andrew Murray

Let us thank God heartily as often as we pray that we have His Spirit in us to teach us to pray. Thanksgiving will draw our hearts out to God and keep us engaged with Him; it will take our attention from ourselves and give the Spirit room in our hearts.

– Andrew Murray –


Jesus is Our Strength and Song – Charles Spurgeon

Let this one great, gracious, glorious fact lie in your spirit until it permeates all your thoughts and makes you rejoice even though you are without strength. Rejoice that the Lord Jesus has become your strength and your song – He has become your salvation.

– Charles Spurgeon –


The Invitation of a Lifetime – Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

Be thankful. God has commanded it—for our good and for His glory. God’s command to be thankful is not the threatening demand of a tyrant. Rather, it is the invitation of a lifetime—the opportunity to draw near to Him at any moment of the day.
