In Psalm 105:1 we are called to Give Thanks to the Lord.
Evergreen students had the opportunity to give thanks to the Lord during chapel on Friday. We thanked God for food and families and school. We prayed over the food that students brought to school for Kids' Food Basket, and we prayed for the children who will receive and eat the food.
We are also called to sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. We sang many songs in chapel on Friday, including Let All Things Now Living as we gave thanks to God our Creator:
Let All Things Now Living
Let all things now living a song of thanksgiving
to God the Creator triumphantly raise,
Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,
who guides us and leads to the end of our days.
His banners are o'er us, his light goes before us,
a pillar of fire shining forth in the night,
Till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished,
as forward we travel from light into light.
It is my prayer that you will take time this week to reflect on God our Creator and that you will give thanks to the Lord...sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Psalm 105.
