Celebrating Thanksgiving 2020 may be a challenge for you. One man said, “2020 is the worst year ever!” So, I ask you, is it possible to still be grateful to God while dealing with the ongoing pandemic, contentious elections, devastating wildfires, civil unrest, and virtual church?
In chaotic times, we must return to our true base of hope. As the saying goes, “Life’s roughest storms prove the strength of our anchor.” The Apostle Paul referred to our hope in Christ as “an anchor of the soul” (Hebrews 6:19 NKJV).
This Thanksgiving, anchor to these three powerful truths in Psalm 100:5. If you do this, your measure of gratitude in increase, your amount of gloom will decrease, and your troubled soul will be at peace.
Psalm 100:5 NKJV, “The Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.”
1. The Lord is good. It may be difficult to see this truth when living in difficult times. As humans, we tend to focus on our losses. But at Thanksgiving, we are encouraged to look at all the good things God has provided. Whatever you have left after 2020, has been given to you by a good God. Take a moment right now and inventory the blessings God has provided for you since last Thanksgiving: “And it may surprise you what the Lord has done.”.
2. His mercy is everlasting. As God created the Heaven’s and the earth, His mercy was on full display. The Greek word that is often translated as “mercy” is eleoo. This verb occurs 28 times in the New Testament and means “to show kindness or concern for someone in serious need.” And that includes you and me! Mercy is not like money. If we run out of cash and we will end up in a pickle. But the mercy of God cannot be exhausted! It’s infinite like God, and never comes to an end. “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease” (Lamentations 3:22 NLT).
3. His truth endures to all generations. Good news Mom and Dad! The kids are included in the promises of God. God remains faithful to every age group. At the Thanksgiving table, it is common to grumble and complain about politics, health issues, unkind people, and the price of milk. But this year, brag on the wonderful God we serve, and how He has promised to be with us no matter how difficult life becomes. After all, if the children do not embrace the Lord as their own, what a waste. Remember the glorious promise of Exodus 20:6 NLT, “But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands.”
Make this Thanksgiving special by giving thanks to our good God for all He has done!
THANK YOU to those who faithfully send in funds each month to keep this ministry in operation. The high cost for WEB hosting and other expenses surrounding this ministry keep rising quickly. If more of you could begin to send in financial support weekly, monthly, or as you are able, this will relieve some of the pressure. Please pray about this need. Thanks and God bless you!

Texas History & God
Thursday - November 26, 2020
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray
about everything. Tell God what you need,
and thank him for all he has done
Philippians 4:4-8 NLT - Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Prayer: Dear Lord - With thanksgiving I come before you today. I am so thankful for your sweet Salvation and love for me. Without you, my future would be dismal. But because of Christ I have a life worth living and an eternal hope. Thank you! In the name of Jesus I pray.
Therefore, comfort each other and edify one another.
1 Thessalonians 5:11

For stay at home Christians...
We started this ministry with you in mind. Recent reports state that many Christians no longer attend a church. They have been offended, or have to work, or they cannot physically leave their home, and so they stay at home. The coronavirus has closed many churches.
Our heart is to reach out to you with Bible studies, hospital visitation, prayer for the sick, serving the Lord's Supper, counsel, etc. Just call on us and we will be your personal pastor.
There is no obligation or membership. When you need personal ministry, click here for more information >>>>
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Romans 8:26 ESV
At this point, the Apostle Peter is giving encouragement to Believers that Jesus was coming back. He writes in 2 Peter 3:12 KJV – “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?”
“Looking for” is a sign of passionate longing for our Savior to come. Surpassing the desire of a mother as she awaits her child to return from war, we are to breathe with hopeful expectation for Christ to Return. Indeed, we can “hasten” that wonderful day by supporting the work of missions ministry as the Gospel message is spread to every nation, “then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).
The “coming of the Day of God,” is special because that’s when Christ will be manifested in all of His Power and Glory. The earth as we know it will melt, or be dissolved. Malachi 4:1 says that the earth will become a “burning oven!” Believers will have escaped this devastation and will be enjoying the glories of Heaven (2 Thessalonians 2:3-10). God has given us the power to choose our destiny. Choose life!
