FULL OF THANKS
Writers like to play with words and when we study languages we learn even more about the depth & meaning of words and it enriches our lives.
When we are full of thanks and count our blessings we can not help but be joy ~full.
GRAPE~FULL to me means to be Full of GRATITUDE & JOY!
And wine in the Bible represents JOY just like the Holy Spirit. Since I do not drink alcohol except on very rare occasions ~ I find it fascinating to see the similarity in and out of the Bible about “being under the influence” of good and not so good things!
The Holy Spirit fills us with JOY even in circumstances that would normally be dreary or sad, similar to alcohol but with no “hang over”.
This Thanksgiving, I am most thankful for the time I got to spend with my children & grandchildren recently since they are living long distances away from me and I AM thankful for the HOLY SPIRIT enabling me
to stay JOY~filled when I am missing them and the many that I loved that have departed from this earthly & physical existence. I now, for the past year live the town that my dad loved & died in 23 years ago and my mother also died 20 years ago after moving back to Germany. I also miss other relatives, including my first born son, whose mission on earth was completed in just one week!
I am amazed by the gift of comfort their deaths have gifted me with for others & myself thanks to the HOLY SPIRIT OF JESUS CHRIST & GOD THE FATHER !
Be COMFORTED by the BEST COMFORTER EVER ~ THE HOLY SPIRT !
JUST ASK GOD, OUR FATHER and BELIEVE THAT WE WILL BE GIVEN JUST WHAT WE NEED ~ JUST WHEN WE NEED IT….THEN WE ALL CAN BE ÜBER THANKFUL TOGETHER~
BRINGING THE KINGDOM COME ON EARTH as it IS IN HEAVEN!
A KINGDOM OF GRACE & TRUTH & PERPETUAL REST & THANKS~ LIVING & LOVING!
Leave a comment & I will pray for you if you like and/or also tell us what YOU ARE MOST THANKFUL FOR THIS YEAR?
Happy THANKSGIVING~ BLESSED THANKS LIVING DAILY!
If you do not have family close by or still living , consider helping out at a thanksgiving gathering in your town. Last year, I was so blessed to go to 5 different ones & welcome strangers as if they were Jesus…and Guess WHAT ….?….
Jesus said , ” …I was hungry and you fed me… I was thirsty & YOU GAVE ME WATER…
I was a stranger and you took me in…”….. Matthew 25:35-40
GO SEE JESUS TODAY! …by reaching out to a hungry & thirsty for LOVE ~ STRANGER!!!!!
I recommend giving directly to the needy yourself and you will get to see lives be transformed. Spending time hearing the stories of the people that we pass in our daily lives & being prepared with a smile, a kind word and some food to share will bless you more than you would ever imagine.
THE WAY TO PREPARE FOR HEAVEN IS TO LIVE HEAVENLY NOW~
BE THANKFUL & GIVE AWAY WHAT YOU HAVE~ like JESUS TAUGHT US!
AND YOU TOO WILL BE FULL OF THANKS & JOY in favor with GOD & ALL!
IT’S LIKE STAYING HI without drugs or alcohol!!!Share this:
