I am reveiwing "Thank You God". You can hear it here while it's still up.
Wasn't that a great intro? Who doesn't want a tour of the AIO radio production station? "This is the music department, I wonder what they're playing today?" \:D/

"I'm thankful when somebody else goes first." :D Connie is totally honest. How often have you had to say what you're thankful for and you had no idea what to say? It's tough to say something you're thankful for, why do you think that is?

"I like Thanksgiving because you get out of school." "You know there's a lot more to the holiday than that."
What's the most important part to thanksgiving? Whit leads Rodney to the answer, "Thanking God for all we have."
Rodney (Not Rathbone) says that he has nothing to be thankful, and that's when Whit tells his story about his stepmother Fionna.

"Just because bad things happen doesn't mean that God isn't there." Rodney lost his mother, Whit lost his mother, Fionna lost her sight. These are all bad things. How can we continue to trust God in these bad situations?

My brother's car broke down recently, and he's had to travel to his work place with a co-worker. This was a bad thing, his car was important and it was expensive to repair. How can this be a good situation?
My brother learned that he could trust God, and he did. God even turned the situation into a good thing.
My brothers co-worker was not saved. These trips that occured because of the broken down car were an opportunity for my brother to witness to his co-worker.

God can take all things and turn them for good.

Discussion questions:
What is the meaning of Thanksgiving?
Why is it hard to say what you're thankful for when the basket gets to you?
How can we continue to trust God when things go wrong?

And just for STRYPER, who heard the stream in the background when they were resting their horses? That was some good sound effects.

It's a day to give thanks to God for all he's provided us. I can't think of any other way to put it.

Most of us are young Americans here, so I'll be talking about that group in my reasons.

First, and this has to do with our society, we have a sense of entitlement, which makes it hard to be thankful, as we see everything we get as something we deserve.

The second reason, for younger folk, is that it's hard for us to appreciate what's given. Most of us don't work, and don't realize just how gracious God is in providing for us.

And the third reason, for Americans, is that we aren't exactly lacking in the possession department.

I've heard people in the past say "Well, I didn't get what I wanted, so God didn't answer my prayer." To which I would say "Sure he did; the answer was a no though, instead of a yes." The conversation would usually turn to God's plan, and how he knows our needs better then us.

And that's what I keep in mind when things get rough. We know that in the rough times he's watching out for us (All things work together for the good of those who serve him) (insert verse about being refined in the fire here), and he's got things under control.

Granted though, that's not always easy.

The meaning of Thanksgiving is to give thanks God for all He has done in our lives.

I think sometimes we simply can't think of things when we're on the spot, at least that's how it can be for me.

We can continue to trust God through bad things because we know that in the midst of our problems, God is with us and will help us through our problems.

I have another question, pretend that we're at the table and the basket is at our place. What do we say as we drop the kernal in the basket? What are we thankful for?

Me, I'm thankful for an abundance of water on this planet. \:D/
