It’s time to think of God’s infinite goodness, mercy, and love!

Thanksgiving

Psalm 95:2
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Psalm 100:4
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Isaiah 51:3
For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

2 Corinthians 4:15
For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 9:11
Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

2 Corinthians 9:12
For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;

Philippians 4:6
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Colossians 2:7
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

1 cor 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

We may not always have things our way, but we can in all place and time give thanks to God for His great munificence!

Glory to God in the highest!
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts!

Thanks be the creator for our creation!
Thanks be to the redeemer for our redemption and salvation!
Thanks be to the almighty God for His mighty works!
Thanks be to the good God for His wonderful mercy!
Thanks be to The eternal God for all His Benifits and Graces!

Blessed be God in His Angels & Saints!

Glory be to the Father, and to the son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end! Amen!

Note: not a single word about the church, Mary, or the authority of the apostles! Wow!
Glory to God!

DIVINE METAMORPHOSIS​


Evidence Of Change


Part One:
WILDERNESS, WASTEPLACES, DESERT.


These thoughts are an isolated wilderness of loneliness
In a mind remote and inaccessible;
Inhospitable, cut-off, shut-off;
No-one comes here.


These lives are forsaken waste places of rejection
In a world hopeless and confused;
Neglected, meaningless, abandoned;
Nothing useful here.


These hearts are a dry desert of defeat
In a soul solitary and sad;
Scorched, blistered, bare;
Nowhere to grow here.


Part Two: GARDEN, DWELLING PLACES, OASIS.


Now these thoughts are a glorious garden of communion
In a mind close and reachable;
Accommodating, inviting, welcoming;
We have fellowship here.


Now these lives are treasured dwelling places of acceptance
In a world hopeful and learning;
Nourished, meaningful, belonging;
We have stewardship here.


Now these hearts are a well-watered oasis of victory
In a soul sociable and glad;
Refreshed, healed, abounding;
We have worship here.


Part Three: CHANGE, TRANSFIGURE, TRANSFORM.


Transform these thoughts from wilderness to garden,
From waste places to dwelling places, these lives transfigure,
Hearts from desert to oasis change,
Your metamorphosis divinely trigger.

She can't hear us. Thank God. He gets the glory. Mary never wanted glory because she knows that belongs to the Savior.

The Holy Spirit can and He has his work in the communion of saints
James 5:16 rev 5:8

Mary and all the saints grace, virtues, and merits are from God’s infinite goodness mercy and love and they end in the God glory!

Not by nature but by supernatural grace!
Mary and the saints are what God made them not according nature but by the supernatural grace of God!
2 Thessalonians 1:10
When he shall come to be glorified in hissaints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

None of those verses prove your point that we should thank Mary or ask her to do anything, or that she could even hear us.

Give God your thanks tomorrow, for it is He who deserves our praise. Remember to have no other gods before you.

All praise of Mary and the saints end in God

Is Jesus our salvation?
did Mary consent to our salvation?

Praise God on Thanksgiving for He is your God. Jesus is your salvation. Mary had faith in God and we praise God that through her the Savior was born, but glorifying her over God is a sin.

I think you’re a borderline fundamentalist
Hope that doesn’t offend you

they say if you even mention Mary it means idolatry

Then maybe just stop when glorifying God and don't add on to include someone else like you did?

We glorify those who God glorifies

give honour where honour is due

2 Thessalonians 1:10
When he shall come to be glorified in hissaints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

2 Thessalonians 1:10
When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Romans 2:10
But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

Romans 13:7
Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
