Be Thankful for These Seven G’s This Thanksgiving

For those of us in the United States, on Thursday we’ll be gorging ourselves on roasted turkey with sage dressing, green bean casserole, buttery mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, and any number of other delectable dishes.

At our table, before we eat a single bite, we count our blessings. Normally, those blessings include a roof over our heads, food on our table, and the love we have both from God and in our family. But this year, thanks to our pastor’s message last Sunday and Psalm 145, we’ll also be contemplating our thankfulness for these seven G’s.

God’s Greatness. “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.” (v. 3)

God’s Goodness. “They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, and shall sing of Your righteousness.” (v. 7)

God’s Grace. “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy.” (v. 8)

God’s Guidance. “The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.” (v. 9)

God’s Gospel. “They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power, to make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His kingdom.” (v. 11-12)

God’s Government. “Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.” (v. 13)

God’s Gifts. “The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” (v. 15-16)

Prayers for a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! J

  3. Dear Meghan
    I live in South Africa and we don't celebrate a Thanksgiving like you do in the USA. I find all your festivities so interesting and it feels as if I am sharing Thanksgiving with you all just without the turkey and cranberry salad. I have seen earlier that some people make a cranberry pie.

    1. Cranberry pie sounds delicious, Mia. I'll have to look around for a recipe. Many blessings to you in South Africa! :-)

  4. These are wonderful, and the scriptures would make awesome memory verses to hide away in our hearts! Thanks for sharing! Visiting from A Mama's Story link-up. :) ~Caroline @ Anchored In His Grace

    1. It would be wonderful to memorize the whole psalm, Caroline. Great idea!

  5. Meghan! I LOVE this. Pinning it to share with my daughters this week! Thank you :)
