A Simple Prayer

Posted in following Jesus with tags , , , , , on November 30, 2008 by rylanreed

Father, better is one day in your courts and one day in your house, than a thousand elsewhere.  It’s better than anything on earth, better than the flesh that we (I) seek everyday.  I’m a sinner in need of a savior, and as I fall to the ground and repent of my past ways, turning from them and turning to the Most High, grace flows over me and I am washed clean by the blood of Jesus Christ.  Thank you father for loving me, not for how good I have been over the past week or so, and for continually seeking to mold me into your image.

Happy Thanksgiving, or is it a happy Turkey Day?

Today is Thanksgiving, a holiday where families get together to spend quality time with each other around the dinner table eating turkey and watching football on TV.  I truely do love this holiday, but it seems that some people are missing the true spirit of what this holiday is all about.  Yes, eating turkey and dressing and all the other delicious foods that are made for this time of season is something I look forward to after summer is over, but I have started to really grasp the significance of why this holiday is so good.  The reason for which this holiday came about, for those who were there at the first feast and for us today, is to be thankful for the things that have been given to us and the life that we have been able to live.  Some people around the world have little or nothing and are happy with anything that they might possess. I hope that today will be more than just the food and games, but of really being thankful for what we all have around us.  America is too great of a country not to be thankful for what we have and for what is at our fingertips.  Every morning I wake up and am thankful to be able to breath and have another day to live.

I’m just getting started.  We’ll see how this goes.  I probably will change the name of this blog, as well.  Who knows.
