Thankfulness and Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving comes and goes.
But what am I thankful for?

I am really thankful for my school, and my family, and my dorm. But most of all, I am finding this year that I am incredibly thankful for my relationship with God. I am thankful for my growing relationship with God. My faith walk has always been dynamic, but I never had the fundamentals and the really academic study of the Scriptures aspect that some of my other Christian friends had. Growing up in the public school system, my religion class was 2 weeks of Christianity (because everyone knows about that) and the rest of the semester studying everything else. My faith always lacked the fundamentals. I had the passion and the energy and the belief, but the daily walk and study and knowledge lacked. I had the ability to practically live my faith, but it has only been since I have been at Redeemer that my understanding has grown. This is one of the greatest gifts God has blessed me with this year.

Thanksgiving is a religious holiday. Who do people who don't believe in God thank? And what is the point of thanksgiving if you have no one to truly thank for all the great and wonderfulness that there is in the world? For some people, Thanksgiving is just a good excuse to get together at a table and eat a lot of really good food.

Just a thought.
