The Katinas – 2010
A lot of the time we get so busy with our day to day lives or are too busy asking God to solve all our problems that we forget to just take time to say 2 words – Thank You!
This song by The Katinas (one of my favourite gospel groups growing up – I think I had a crush on Jessie back in the day lol) always stops me in my tracks because it takes time to say those 2 words and the boys sum it up so well in the first verse:
Just a little while longer I wanna pray
Can’t get You off my mind so I came to say
Thank You Lord just for loving me
Many times I do forget
Every need that You have met
Oh thank You Lord, I know You’re showing me
You are there when I am down and out
You’re holding me, Your love is so amazing
Oh it changed me
My church (Equippers) has had an ‘I am thankful’ theme going on this year and I’ve noticed my pastors wife posts an #iamthankful IG every day (check hers out and follow her here ) and it reminds me of this scripture:
1 Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus
And with that said it’s Thanksgiving day in the US of A so Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my Americano family and friends. I’ve been watching a lot of the tweets this morning with people I follow expressing what they are thankful for and I don’t really know the background or the history of Thanksgiving (except that it has something to do with the pilgrims – I really should look it up sometime lol) but it’s always seemed like an awesome holiday where family and friends get together, eat turkey and give thanks!
#Iamthankful for so many things right now it’d take all day to list so I’ll leave you with The Katinas ‘Thank You’ and I’ve always loved the Samoan version too so here’s the video for ‘Fa’afetai’ as well. Happy Thanksgiving yo!
