BLESSED TODAHGIVING & EUCHARISTIAGIVING

 Greetings O Ye Givers of Thanks...

I want to say to you...BLESSED TODAHGIVING.  Of course the word BLESSED or BLESSING means to be...

BLESSED: makarios (mak-ar'-ee-os)=A prolonged form of the poetical μάκαρ makar (meaning the same); SUPREMELY BLEST by extension fortunate, well off: - blessed, HAPPY (X -ier).

THANKSGIVING: tôdâh (to-daw')= properly an extension of the hand, that is, (by implication) avowal, or (usually) adoration; specifically a choir of worshippers: - confession, (sacrifice of) praise, thanks
 
THANKSGIVING:  eucharistia (yoo-khar-is-tee'-ah)=From ; gratitude; actually grateful language (to God, as an act of worship): - thankfulness, (giving of) thanks (-giving).  G2170:  eucharistos (yoo-khar'-is-tos)=From G2095 and a derivative of G5483; well favored, that is, (by implication) grateful: - thankful.
 

In the good old U.S. of A...we take one time a year in November we reflect and give THANKS.  Of course there are 364 days left that we should also GIVE THANKS (and many do)...but let us be THANKFUL for the one day also.

Here are just a few of the connections with what we call TODAHGIVING

Psalm 26:7      Tell all Thy wonderful ways
Psalm 50:14    Pay vows to the most high
Psalm 69:30     Magnify Him
Psalm 95:2      Come into His presence and make
                        joyful noise with Psalms.
Psalm 100:4    Enter his gates and courts with praise
Psalm 107:22  Declare His works
Psalm 116:17  Call on His name
Psalm 147:7    Sing unto the Lord

Now...off course there is nothing wrong with TODAHGIVING for a good job, food, family, friends, your church...because...in essence...we acknowledge that..."every good thing and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow."  (James 1:17)  We also know that we should..."Rejoice always...pray without ceasing and in EVERYTHING..GIVE THANKS for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."          (I Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Let us also enter into EUCHARISTGIVING...

II Corinthians 4:15  Grace and abundance
II Corinthians 9:11  Enriched in everything to all
                                bountifulness
Philippians 4:6        All your request be made known
                                to God before you see an answer
                                for anxiety to be busted and
                                peace that surpasses all
                                comprehension to guard your
hearts and minds in Christ Jesus

Colossians 2:7   Rooted...Built up...Established in the faith
Colossians 4:2   Continue in prayerful watching
Revelation 7:12  Blessing, Glory, Wisdom, Thanksgiving, Honor, Power, Might unto our God

"Amen! (So be it!) they cried.  Blessing and gory and majesty and splendor and wisdom and THANKS and honor and power and might (be ascribed) to our God to the ages and ages--forever and ever, throughout the eternities of the eternities! Amen! (So be it!) (Revelation 7:12)

Oh what a wonderful day to focus on our God and our Lord.  Of course the Psalms point out the fact that "this is the day..." (Psalm 118:24)  On the space-time continuum...on the chronological time line...THIS refers to the current day.  THIS day is referred to as THE DAY OF VICTORY and is speaking of the day that He was sacrificed on the CROSS as our PROPITIATION (satisfactory substitute for us on the cross).  That DAY change our lives for every day of the year.  The D.B.R....made EVERY DAY worthy of THANKSGIVING.  "Therefore if any man or wo-manor hu-man is IN CHRIST...they are NEW CREATIONS...the OLD THINGS have passed away...behold NEW THINGS have come." (II Corinthians 5:17)  Everyday that I wake up...I wake up as a NEW MAN...and everyday I wake up I should have NEW THANKSGIVING on my lips.

FINAL THOUGHTS...FINALLY

The old song encourages us to...Count your blessings...name them one by one...count your blessings see what God has done...Count your blessings...name them one by one...count your many blessings and see what God has done." (Johnson Oatman Jr. Lyrics and Edwin O. Excell Music)

Let's take this day of  BLESSED TODAHGIVING & EUCHARISTIAGIVING  and COUNT OUR BLESSINGS...and give Him  TODAH and EUCHARISTIA

Love and Very Thankful Kisses
