Themes of Thanksgiving


With Thanksgiving right around the corner and Christmas on its heels, the holiday season has begun. Christmas decorations have been appearing in stores since Halloween and the tents for trees are going up around town.

Thanksgiving to me is sort of a funny concept. Don’t get me wrong, I love the turkey and gravy, pumpkin pie, spending time with family and feeling the season change, but why do we as Christians need to set aside one day where we give thanks?

Since I’ve started working at Cross and gotten involved with Harmony of Hearts, I’ve begun to realize just how much I have to be thankful for. Even when things in my life don’t go how I want them too or God does some pruning in my heart, I know I have the ability to give thanks, because he’s working in my life.

The song “Carried to the Table” by Leeland has really touched my heart recently so I wanted to share it with you. The chorus reads:

I was carried to the table
Seated where I don’t belong
Carried to the table
Swept away by His love
And I don’t see my brokenness anymore
When I’m seated at the table of the Lord
I’m carried to the table
The table of the Lord

That’s the greatest gift we could ever receive. We have been forgiven. We have been given mercy. We have been given grace.

Let God show you the truth in this song, and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
