BASIC INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE LEAVING EARTH (BIBLE)11 THANKS GIVING 22/11/18, ‘If you are breathing, no excuse for mourning, others aren’t lucky enough to be alive!’,

THANKS GIVING: is an important day that is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each November in the USA, Thursday 22 November 2018. In our Christian journey on earth, spiritual growth is important. We must always gives thanks and enter into a relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit to mature spiritually as we become more holy and develop our faith in Jesus. Along that journey, we should always be thankful to God for everything that happens in our life because he is the same God who promised us before in the Bible, same God now and will always be the same God tomorrow. He is a God of restoration and what may appear a loss, no matter how big or painful, is simply God preparing us for greater things in life, so, always be thankful to God.
I live by a simple policy,    ‘If you are breathing, no excuse for mourning, others aren’t lucky enough to be alive! Therefore in everything we do in this world, think about the suffering people enduring injustices, homelessness, hunger, pain, neglect, wars, lack of means of survival, sickness, death, broken families, broken marriages, broken relationships and all other torment inflicted upon us in this world. They may have lost, may not have these privileges but our God is a God of Restoration and he only stripped them of those things, preparing them for greater things, therefore stop dwelling on your losses, rejoice in the Lord, give thanks to the almighty in heaven and brace for the blessings he has safely kept in store for you. Open your hearts and arms to receiving the showers of blessings from above. Remember the Bible says in Psalm 106:1 ‘Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.’  Thursday 22 November 2018, the fourth November is thanks giving day in the USA and Canada, so lets all join them and thank God for what he has done for us in the past, now and what he will do for us in the future, because we all serve one God.
Here are some verses from the bible to help your spiritual growth through Thanks giving. Always remember that the devil is real and he will continuously seek ways to manifest in society by seeking dominion over us, through reaching out to those with power, influence and control over the legal and governance structures in a people, legitimise his hold and give untold wealth to the powers that be, in exchange for the souls sacrificed to him. 
Therefore, I call upon everyone in pursuit of righteousness to always pray, at any time, any number of times, in any place, any language, noisily or silently as your prayers will always be heard by God because his lines are never busy and open to everyone 24/7, therefore call upon his name and he will listen and bless you.  We must always give thanks to God and bless his name, and appreciate that, what we see as little or nothing is much more than others have or survive on. My policy in life is that, ‘If you are breathing, no excuse for mourning, others aren’t lucky enough to be alive!,
Thanks giving is a time we should bless God and give thanks and praise to him for what he has done for us in the past, now and what he will do for us in the future. We should always thank God because God knows our future and there is nothing that will ever come as a surprise to him in what we face because he already planned our future and designed how you will overcome all hurdles thrown at you. God won’t put you through anything you can’t handle. as promised to us in 1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
Let us always remember to thank God in everything, in times of loss, gain, failure, success, desperation, pain or joy, simply thankful to him at all times as the Bibles commands in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18-16 ‘Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus’.
Remember that in life, God has been good to us, so, be thankful that when you felt at your worst, be it failure, loss, hurt or some other pain, God walked you through the suffering and as the Bible tells us in Psalms 100:5 ‘For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.’ , lets always be thankful for the amazing grace of God and meditate on all that God has blessed you with your life. Remember :2 Timothy 3:16-17 ’16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work’.
