We Give Thanks

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord,

“who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Revelation 1:8

We give thanks to You, O Lord, Almighty God.  As I prepare this week for the mission trip to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, I am reminded of all of the things I am thankful for.  The 20/20 Children of the Plains special I viewed to learn about the reservation and the life of the Lakota was very heartbreaking.  It is very easy to just live in our own “little world” and not step out of our comfort zone.  My hope and prayers are for me to open my heart this weekend and build relationships that I can cherish the rest of my life.


Dear God, I ask for you to help me to be thankful. I ask for you to help me to be willing to take the steps to build relationships this coming weekend that I normally would not do in my everyday life.  Remind me that everything I have has been a gift from you and I am only its keeper.  Help me to be a  “giver” in my life.  In your son’s name, Jesus, I pray.
