A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM PASTOR LOREN
Winter is approaching and the time change is already upon us. Wow is it that time already? Yes it is that time and it is also a time to be thankful. The holiday called Thanksgiving will be here soon! But we should not need a holiday to be thankful. Thanksgiving is not always about being thankful for all the good things we possess, but rather it is a state of the mind!
Psalms 100:1-5 says, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing.  Know ye that the Lord, he is God; it is he who hath made us, and not we ourselves we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and bless his name.  For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endureth to all generations."
We can and should be thankful no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in simply by making a decision to do so. The only way that we can actually enter into God's presence is by being thankful and by praising His name! And why? Because God is good and merciful always. We can always praise Him for His goodness! He is never the author of the bad things that happen in our lives. In fact, the very act of being thankful and praising His name will be the avenue God will use to bring deliverance from the very things holding us down.
So let's make a decision today to be thankful continually for He is Good!!!
