A Special Time of Year

2015_nov_27_thanksgiving
We are blessed. There is no doubt about that. Blessed in so many different ways. We should take the time to count those many blessings–naming them, as the songwriter suggested, “one by one.”

We have the privilege in our country to have a national holiday where we can take time to remember and express our thankfulness for all that we have. Yes, as followers of Jesus, we are always able to express our gratitude to the Lord, but it is a special joy to be able to set aside a special time of the year to reflect on His goodness to us.

Paul said in Philippians 1, that he “thanked His God upon every remembrance of you.” It is appropriate for us at CE National, whether in the home office in Winona Lake, Indiana, or in the East office in Philadelphia, to say that we thank God for every remembrance we have of you.

Thank you for your partnership in ministry. Thank you for being a prayer partner with CE. Thank you for financially supporting this Church Effectiveness ministry. This ministry, humanly speaking, only exists because of you.

“We thank God upon every remembrance of you.” May God continue to use and bless you and yours for His glory as you seek to live ON MISSION for Him. Happy Thanksgiving!
