Eyes Fixed on the Goodness of God

Happy Thanksgiving Week, Friends! We are touched that you are taking a few precious minutes to pause in the busyness of holiday preparations to be with us. Today we're sharing a written (and audio!) post by Jaime Sherman on the practice of fixing our eyes on the goodness of God. The feature also includes a look ahead to our advent series, Thanksgiving songs to enjoy this week, sections to read from the Bible, reflection questions, and a brief look at the first Thanksgiving in the New World 400 years ago.

Practice Praising God

One way we prepare our hearts for the Sabbath is through thanksgiving. The act of thanking God for the little and big, the easy and hard things of life allows us to acknowledge that all good things come from our Father. Through thanksgiving, we accept His gifts and worship Him for His goodness. In the discipline of slowing down each day to count even just a few things for which we are thankful, we see God’s work around us in new ways.
