A lot to be thankful for

Here we are in the midst of the holiday season.  It is a time that we reflect on things that we are thankful for.  And here in Rabun County, we have a lot to be thankful for.  Here are just some things that I think we ought to be thankful for here in Rabun County.

  1. For God’s constant care and guardianship for us.
    1. Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Psalm 68:19.
  2. Knowing that God is always listening to our prayers.
    1. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; Philippians 4:6.
  3. For Christ’s gift of eternal life.
    1. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57.
  4. For the Church and what it means to us here in Rabun County.
    1. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15.
    2. Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15.
  5. For the Word of God that guides us to heaven.
    1. Let Your mercies come also to me, O LORD—Your salvation according to Your word. Psalm 119:41.

There are so many other things to be thankful for.  But as the Psalmist states over and over again, I am thankful to God for all things.  Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. Psalm 97:12.
