God inhabits the praises of His people,
it’s obvious a grateful heart cannot remain small.

 3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
 Psalm 22:3 KJV

 19 Then out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of those who make merry; I will multiply them, and they shall not diminish; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
 Jeremiah 30:19 NKJV

Thanksgiving is the application for more.
Like a funnel, hands lifted in gratitude and thanksgiving to God;
 make room for more of Him to be poured into us.

 Gratitude makes great, the little.
11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted.
 John 6:11 NKJV

4 Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him.
Psalm 100:4 MSG

5 Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You.
6 Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us.
7 God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
Psalm 67:5-7

 Father, thank you for the last month of the year 2018.
 I specifically thank you for being my help.
 (1 Samuel 7:12)

Father, thank you for the guarantee from your Word that the end of this year will be better than its beginning!
 (Ecclesiastes 7:8)

Father, Thank You for keeping me alive to see today.
 I thank you for the guarantee I have in your Word that I am NOT leaving this year defeated or empty handed!
  I move into the new year with hands raised in the proclamation of victory; this is my month of joyous celebrations, abundant harvest and multiple opportunities for Thanksgiving!



Dedicated To All Those Born this Month!



Excerpt: Not everyone that started this year is alive this day…
If a living dog is better than a dead lion (Ecclesiastes 9:4), how much more a living lion that’s destined by design to be victorious (Proverbs 30:30)…?
Regardless of what this year may have been like, 
we have a guarantee in God that we are NOT leaving this year defeated!
Just like the children of Israel left Egypt with much spoil (Exodus 12:36), 
we will NOT enter the new year empty handed.
Like a runner winning the race, the clock has all hands up at 12 o’clock.
In this 12th month, may you with hands raised, 
proclaim "VICTORY AT LAST!" as we approach the new year!
God Bless You!

FINAL NOTE | December 2015
Excerpt: The twelve unique notes of the piano allow for twelve possible keys in music…
...regardless of position, just about any key can start a great song.
The last note of a song can sometimes give a clue to what key the song was in.
May this be a December full of JOYOUS CELEBRATIONS indeed.

Twelve Baskets Full | December 2016
Excerpt: Thanksgiving creates more opportunities to give thanks.
In counting our blessings, we are more than likely to lose count especially when we pay attention to those blessings we think don’t count.
What would have barely fed a few at first, became more than enough afterwards…
Challenges are somewhat indicators of blessings about to come or of those we’ve received.
The table is always closer than the enemies around...
In taking time to pick up the extras, twelve baskets were realized.
When we take time to think, even the seemingly insignificant becomes a genuine reason to thank God.
Thanking God for what He’s done before is an application for more.
May the blessings of this year be a tiny fraction of those to be seen in the new year.
God Bless You!

Excerpt: Though the darkness may suggest otherwise, it's in order to say “Good Morning” moments after 12:00am.
Praising at midnight (grateful when it doesn't really seem logical to be) is like rejoicing for a miracle before it is obvious.
Conception may be unnoticed but pregnancy can’t be hidden.
Some answers to prayers initiate a process even the recipient may not fully comprehend.
It's wise to prepare for harvest long before it arrives.
As runners cross the finish line with lifted hands, may reasons to rejoice abound this new month.
May the Deliberate Praises offered this twelfth month rise in acceptance as both gratitude for the blessings received and a memorial ensuring completion of the blessings in process.
God Bless You!



If you’re reading this and yet to accept Jesus Christ into your life as your Lord and personal Saviour, please pray the below:

Heavenly Father, I come to you today in the name of Jesus. 
I am a sinner and cannot help myself. 
I believe with all my heart, that Jesus died, was buried and rose triumphantly for me! 
Forgive me all my sins. 
Cleanse me with the precious blood of your son, Jesus. 
Deliver me from sin and Satan to serve you, the true and living God. 
Today, I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Saviour. 
Thank you for saving me! 
I am born again. 
I believe that I’m now your true child, in Jesus' mighty name.
