I feel that a pessimistic sentiment will continue to prevail in the world. However, in the darkness of this world, we wish to be the light.
John 6:38-39 ~ JESUS CAME SO YOU WOULD NOT BE LOST ~ Give thanks to the Father for Jesus who He sent so that you would not be lost, but that you will be raised up at the last day by your faith in His promises. If I feel like I am not living with the full assurance of the promise I remind myself accepting God's Grace found in Jesus means living with a grateful heart for what He has done for me. This Thanksgiving I praise Him for what He has done for me with a grateful and thankful heart.
