Thanksgiving is less than a week away and we thought we could give you a little bit of encouragement before heading into the weekend with some of our favorite verses about giving thanks. At Ugandan Gold Coffee, we are thankful for the power of God. We are very aware that without the mercy of Christ we would not be the organization we are today, and we would not have been able to bless as many lives as we have over the years. We are thankful for our workers, good harvests, and clean water. We wish all our readers the best as they prepare for a busy holiday of turkey, mashed potatoes, and (we are hoping) a good cup of Ugandan Gold Coffee to wash the feast down.
You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:11
I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge. 1 Corinthians 1:4-5
All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:15-16
