Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this holiday!ย  Not just because of the turkey, shopping, and football though.ย  Don’t get me wrong, these things are great, but there is so much more to be grateful for!ย  I’m most thankful for my family, puppies, friends, and of course the fact that God is amazing!ย  God is so good to us every moment of every day and I am SO thankful for His unconditional love.ย  I mean think about it, you could do the worst thing in the world or be a completely horrible person and He is still going to be there for you.ย  He loves us no matter how flawed we can be.ย  That’s what unconditional means – there is nothing that we could ever do could separate us from His love and I am so grateful for this.

โ€œNothing Can Separate Us from Godโ€™s Love – What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, wonโ€™t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No oneโ€”for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No oneโ€”for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at Godโ€™s right hand, pleading for us.

Can anything ever separate us from Christโ€™s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from Godโ€™s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrowโ€”not even the powers of hell can separate us from Godโ€™s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth belowโ€”indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.โ€ย  -Romans 8:31-39

God loves us so much and that is truly something to be thankful for! I hope that you all are having a great day full of family, friends, good food, laughter, and blessings!
