Thanks and Praise

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I give thanks to God for you in the name of our Savior Jesus the Christ! In the devotional book,”Streams in the Desert” (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan 1997, 298), John Henry Jowett asks, ” Whoever thinks of announcing a victory song as the army is just heading into the battlefield? And where do we ever hear a song of gratitude and thanksgiving for an answer that has not been received?...Yet…Praise is actually the most vital preparation to the working of miracles. Miracles are reformed through spiritual powers, and our spiritual power is always in proportion to our faith.”  See Psalm 138 for further wisdom on this topic. 

On Sunday, Roy Long will be sharing in the sermon presentation with me. Roy’s brother Jeff has served as a missionary in the Philippines for 30 years. The organization is “Kids International Ministries.” More information is available at their website- Let us pray upon the ways God is calling us to be thankful and practice generosity even in the face of tragedy. Let us gather this Thanksgiving to give thanks and praises of gratitude for what our God has yet to do through us!

Your life matters!

Pastor David J. Jensen
