Deuteronomy chapter 8, verse 10 concludes a short passage in which God assures his people of his good intentions for them. It says, “for the Lord you God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey, a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing…and you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land He has given you.”
What a great verse to help us prepare our hearts for thanksgiving. If ever those statements above were ever true for a nation, they are true for us in America. Just walk through the grocery store and look around.

We have so much to be thankful for. One of the upcoming bible verses I have chosen to memorize this year is Colossians 2:6-7. I love the way Paul ends his exhortation to us. He writes, “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him; rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught and overflowing with thankfulness.

May our cups of thankfulness over flow.
