Thankful for God’s presence



“Worship and serve him with your whole heart and with a willing mind. For the Lord sees every heart and understands and knows every plan and thought. If you seek him, you will find him.…”

1 Chronicles 28:9

About this week’s promise:

As we near closer to Thanksgiving, our promise this week is not about the usual themes of bounty, but the blessings found when we seek God. For it is from an intimate relationship with God that his blessings flow.

Heart to heart, mind to mind, soul to soul — this is intimacy. There is relational intimacy, where two people become soul mates, free to openly share all their burdens, fears, and joys with each other. Then there is physical intimacy, reserved only for marriage, where a man and woman, through their sexual relationship, reach new heights of vulnerability that should allow them to communicate at the most profound level. And finally there is intimacy with God, where we learn to understand the very heart of God. As we do this, all other intimacy takes on new and even greater meaning.

<!–It is appropriate this week of Thanksgiving, when we as a nation thank God and pray for his continued blessings on our nation and its leaders, to introduce George W. Bush: Portrait of a Leader, a book that commemorates the inauguration of the second term of President Bush. Tyndale House Publishers was chosen by the White House to publish this commemorative book, which includes elements of the faith that made this nation great and that guides President and Mrs. Bush. ” –>
