26 Nov The Blind Side
It’s the best movie I’ve seen in years. Why did it touch my heart? Why did I have tears in my eyes? Because I saw Jesus living out His grace and love through a couple who live in Memphis, TN.
Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy extended that JESUS LOVE to a young man named Michael Oher, whose mother was a drug addict, and father had been murdered. One Thanksgiving Eve, the Tuohy’s and their two children spotted Michael walking in the cold wearing only a t-shirt and shorts, and invited him back to their home. That started a series of events that would be used by the Lord to dramatically change this young man’s life…forever. With the love and encouragement of the Tuohy’s, Michael completed high school and college and was drafted last year by The Baltimore Ravens. He has indeed come a long way with an unlimited future.
Note: Somebody Jesus touched reached out and touched Michael Oher. Thanksgiving was turned into THANKSLIVING.
Who has the Lord used to touch your life? Why don’t you thank God for them? Why don’t you thank those people personally? Why not give that JESUS LOVE to someone this Thanksgiving?
Think about the passage below; remember and list your blessings and share them with family and friends gathered around your table this Thanksgiving.
“Oh my soul, bless God.
From head to toe, I’ll bless His holy name!
Oh my soul, bless God,
don’t forget a single blessing!
He forgives your sins-every one.
He heals your diseases-every one.
He redeems you from hell-saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy-a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness-beauty eternal.
He renews your youth-you’re always young in His presence.”
The Message Bible
As we remember our many blessings this year, we thank God, and are so grateful for each of you!
