Today we take time to thank our Creator for all of our blessings, chief among them the privilege of being citizens of the greatest country on Earth. Let us bow our heads in gratitude for our precious Republic.
Thank you, Lord, for the United States of America where freedom reigns, forever, with Your guidance and help.
We here at WTPOTUS are thankful for our readers, commenters, fellow bloggers, and friends. We are also thankful for the opposition, because they make us think and keep us on our toes. As Greg Laurie recently wrote:
Sometimes what we think of today as bad may be ultimately good, because it changes who we are – for the better. And sometimes what we think of as good can be bad because it causes us to forget God and instead trust in ourselves. … [To] give thanks regardless of your circumstances requires the realization that God is wiser than you are. He is always dealing with you for your best eternal good. He will sort everything out. It is not for us to fret over.
It is, however, for us to persevere. And so we shall.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Keep the faith. Endure.
