"I will enter into his gates with thanksgiving in my heart! I will enter His courts with praise! I will say "This is the Day the Lord has made." I will rejoice for he has made me glad!"
These words from a song I sang as a child have been streaming through my head since last night. The song is based on Psalms 100:4
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
This is a statement of resolve. It's a choice. It's my Spirit telling my Flesh...Be Thankful, Praise Him, Be Thankful to Him, Bless His name. The song says...I WILL...I WILL...I WILL.
As the list sounds off for Thanksgiving preparations with shouts of "Me First...Me First!" we mustn't forget to enter into the Presence of the Lord with Thanksgiving and Praise. You will bless His name and He will give you Joy!
Won't you share your Thanksgivings and Praises to the Lord and we will encourage one another;)
