Thanks Be to God


Love is the Master Plan.


Psalm 118:1

Give thanks to the Lord, who is good, whose love endures forever.


Do you believe this?

Many people seem to have a toxic image of God as a judgmental ogre looking to punish us.

But if God is love as scripture tells us (1 John 4:8) and if God is like Jesus as Jesus was quoted as saying (John 14:7)…then a ‘punishing God’ is certainly a false image.

Have we not all experienced the love and comfort of God in times of sorrow and pain…as well as experienced the love of God in times of joy and pleasure?

Jesus showed us the true nature of God.

He shared in the joy and he shared in the suffering. He untiringly reached out to heal those in need.

When you feel the pain that comes along the path of life know that God hangs with you…suffers with you…cries with you…and comforts you.

Our loving Creator inspires others to come to our aid as well.

Perhaps you have been inspired to reach out to someone in need?

God’s love does not depend on our response, beliefs or actions.

It is always freely given. It is eternally abundant.

Give thanks!
