Do you only give thanks on Thanksgiving? When we offer our thanksgiving to God, our sacrifice of praise is giving thanks to God for what He has done for us through the willing sacrifice of His son Jesus on the cross. Then there is no worry, stress, burdens or cares. The weight of oppression falls off. Hebrews 13:15 says that there needs to be a continual sacrifice of praise with the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
