Thanksgiving Special Note from Candice Coates

With the Thanksgiving holiday just a few days away, we at ICFTS want to say thank you. Thank you for your support, thank you for your comments, and thank you for your prayers. It is such a delight to journey into the divine creative destinies that Christ has in store for us and is inviting us to decorate in detail alongside Him. We pray that each of you has the most amazing thanksgiving and that you remember each and every day is a day worth being thankful for. As we gear up for the last few weeks of, not only 2019, but this decade, we wanted to let you know that we will be back and ready to dream, imagine, believe, do, and conquer the adventures that await each of us in 2020! We will see you on the other side of the coming New Year! Candice, Founder of ICFTS ~Dream. Imagine. Believe. Do. CONQUER!

Thanks in Everything: The Art of Thanks Giving by Briana Lassiter

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” ~PSALM 136:1 November has finally come upon us and with it comes the holiday season.

But for those in the States, Thanksgiving is the crown jewel of November. But more than a day, more than dressing and turkey dinners, there is something to be said about thanksgiving–literally giving the King of Kings thanks for all that He is and all that He has done. Giving thanks should be more than just an event that takes place once a year or even a week. It should be something that its joyfully practiced in all seasons, every day, in the good and in the sorrowful. Journey along with us here at ICFTS as we explore the life-transforming glory and blessing of thanksgiving.
