November’s Food for Your Soul
Having a thankful heart can change your entire perspective and outlook on life. One of the best ways to experience the power of thanksgiving is through prayer. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic - with job loss, sickness and loss, we can experience blessings. When we offer a prayer of thanks to God, our focus shifts from our problems to our blessings. And that's the beauty of faith - we can experience gratitude and give thanks despite the circumstances and storms that surround us.
