In everything giving thanks-1

Rebecca of Rebecca Writes plans to celebrate Thanksgiving by noting something she is thankful for on each day of the month for the entire month of November, "giving thanks always and for everything to the God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus." (Eph. 5:20)

I too want to mark this month with the remembrances of the Lord's goodness to me and to others so for today, November 1, I am grateful that I have been saved by the glorious grace of a merciful God who has made me alive in Christ even when I was dead in my sin. My sin condemned me, yet in Him I have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of my sins according to the riches of His grace which He lavished upon me...

I thank God for so great a salvation.

Want to express your gratitude this month? Rebecca invites whosoever will to join in:

Here are three ways you can join in the thanksgiving.

  • Mention something you’re thankful for in the comments here and I’ll included it in one of my thanksgiving posts, or
  • Email me to tell me what you’re thankful for and I’ll include it in a post, or
  • Post your thankful thought(s) on your own blog, send me the link(s), and I’ll link to your post(s). If you plan to make your thanksgiving posts daily during the month, let me know that and you won’t need to send me daily links


  1. I'm glad to be participating in this month of thanksgiving with you! What a great start you have: thankful for salvation. Amen.

  2. Of all the wonderful blessings God has given, this is the most lavish and deserves our highest thanks. Amen, Lisa!

  3. This is so very similar to the Gratitude Challenge that I'm starting tonight-- I plan to do the same thing each evening during November. :)

  4. Love it! I'm doing one with a slightly different twist - just posted about it awhile ago!
