Rejoice and Give Thanks
The Upward Look
by Max D. Hutto,
“Be glad in the LORD, you righteous ones, And give thanks to His holy name.” Psalm 97:12 NASB
The year 2020 has brought much pain and suffering to people all around the world. Yet in this year like no other in my lifetime, I am still thankful. I have joy and gladness in my life for the Lord is my God and my Savior. He has redeemed my soul from the slavery of sin and death and has given me life. I stand in His righteousness and holiness for He has blessed me with life both here and now and in eternity in Heaven. He has blessed me with family and friends. In His love and light I continue to press on.
Lord Jesus, help me to share Your great love and grace with others in this strange and dark world, as I rejoice and give thanks to You, basking in the life You provide.
