We love thanksgiving. As a nation we celebrate a day of thanksgiving this Thursday. One day a year intent consideration is given to those things we are truly grateful for. Through out the Bible is a theme of on-going thankfulness, not just once a year. And it isn’t an empty thankfulness but is directed to the LORD our God.
The Holloway’s are thankful for many things this year. God has provided for us in so many ways but one particularly encourages us to thank him; He provides encouragement through relationships with people.
We have been blessed with really good friends who have supported and affirmed our calling to Ghana. Even while navigating chaotic busy lives they make time to mentor us through this transition into full time ministry. Again and again they have provided encouragement to us. And for this we are thankful!
These friends encourage us by their love for us. 1 John 4:21 states “And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.” Our friends are living this out every day.
What about you? What are you thankful to God for? We would love to hear what you are thankful for so that we too can praise God for his blessings on you.
