FIRST- I AM THANKFUL FOR A GOD WHO IS LOVE
Maybe everybody doesn’t love me, I know the devil doesn’t. But I don’t love him either. I am loved by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who has made himself a dependable and reliable and very personal Father. He is not just a big somebody out there somewhere who makes good and bad things happen at His whims. He showed me His kind of love when put himself in a bodily form, called Himself Jesus, and died in my place instead of killing me for all the wrongs I had done. He then moved supernaturally in several men who wrote 66 books by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and gave me instructions on how to live my short life ‘walking in success.’ OH…
SECOND- I’M THANKFUL FOR MY WIFE AND CHILDREN
I am thankful for an unbelievable wife, named Thelma. I loved her before I ever knew her. I could have married a hundred women and never got one as good as her. She gave me two of the most wonderful sons a man could ever wish for. They were the icing on the cake of our marriage. Those boys then passed on to us, five of the most beautiful and God-loving grand children. They also show their love to us by their constant communication with us. And THEN – those grand children, gave us 14 great-grand children, who live within easy range of where we live. We get to see them regularly. How could it get any better…?
THIRD- I AM THANKFUL FOR THE MINISTRY THAT GOD GAVE ME
I am thankful for the 65 years of a divinely chosen and anointed calling to do what I have done. I spent about 19 pastoral years, and the rest of that time in overseas evangelism, and guest speaking in churches. I am thankful for the pastor friends who have become the cream of the acquaintances I have made. These are the finest people on earth. Nobody knows how to appreciate a pastoral and ministry calling unless you have experienced receiving that call. It starts with a broken heart for the lost of the world. Oh the tears, – but oh the joy…
FOURTH- BUT NOT LEAST…
Are the friends and partners that God has given us over the years. Some of these people have stood by us for 40 years with their prayers and monthly donations.Several have gone on to receive their reward in heaven. You will dance with me on the golden streets of heaven because we will share equally in the rewards that God has prepared for us. That is a fact…!
AND THEN- I AM THANKFUL THAT I WAS BORN IN AMERICA
I could have been born in any other part of the world, and walked for hundreds of miles with a baby on my back, and kids hanging onto my skirts, just hoping I could get into America. But I was ” born free”, – and then I was “born again.” I thank God for President Donald Trump who wants to call “Thanks Giving” by it’s proper title. He wants to call Christmas, CHRISTMAS! America was redeemed from the precipice of destruction when God gave us President Trump. I don’t judge if he knows Jesus in the same relationship that I have. But a person would have to be deliberately blind to not see that he is a tool in the hands of our Almighty and loving God. I pray for his overall protection and continued success in every way, – every day! GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP. And HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and Melania and all your family. They are a God fearing people. His/our/God’s enemies will be disappointed in their efforts to stop what God is doing in our nation and in this world. We are ‘born again’ to ‘WIN.’ * Gerald Davis
