Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;

make known his deeds among the peoples!

Sing to him, sing praises to him;

tell of all his wondrous works!

Glory in his holy name;

let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!

Seek the Lord and his strength;

seek his presence continually!

1 Chronicles 16:8-11 ESV

I thank God continually for the encouragement, love and support that I receive from y’all. I am thankful for each and every reader of this blog and it is with all the love and joy within me that I say, “Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! I love y’all very much!”

Lord God, thank You and praise You for all the ways that You bless us, provide for us and care for us! Lord God, may we NEVER stop thanking and praising You! Lord God, even in the midst of pain, adversity and trials, may we seek Your goodness in the land of the living. May we seek to thank and glorify You with the time that You have given us.

Lord God, for the reader who is far from Christ may today be the day of salvation. May today be the day where this reader is reconciled to Yourself by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord God, for those of us who are in Christ thank You and praise You that we are a new creation! Thank You and praise You that we are not who we once were! Thank You Holy Spirit for convicting us, pointing out our need for Jesus and for sealing us. Thank You Jesus for Your death, burial, resurrection and ascension that for all who believe in You by grace through faith are reconciled to God the Father. Father God, thank You for sending Jesus. Thank You Father God for this reader. Thank You Jesus for the opportunity to pray in Your Name for this reader. Holy Spirit thank You for this reader, lead and guide this reader today. Holy Trinity: Father, Son, Spirit may we thank You and glorify You not just today but in all our days.

Thank You Lord that when we thank and praise You our perspective changes and we focus on You and not ourselves. For those who will be with unsaved friends and loved ones today, use us Lord, guide our speech to witness to Your goodness today. Lord God, thank You and praise You again for this reader! Guide this reader today. Lord, may this reader’s heart overflow with praise and thanksgiving for You! In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen and Amen.

Blue Collar Theologian

My name is Mandy Sweigart-Quinn, I live in Lancaster, PA and I am a “Blue Collar Theologian.” I love Jesus! I am passionate about His Word (The Holy Bible)! I come alive when I can encourage others in their walk with Jesus (whether by writing or speaking). As a “Blue Collar Theologian” it is my aim to live/practice/work out my Christian hope with sincerity, authenticity and genuineness. As a “Blue Collar Theologian,” I strive to meet people right where they are (“Incarnational Theology”). I graduated in May 2019 from Capital Seminary and Graduate School with a Master's in Biblical Studies. I am a passionate, excited and enthusiastic person! I love flowers, sports and sunsets. Since January 2, 2018 I have had the privilege of being married to Nathan.

  1. Amen and Amen, sister! Thank You, Father, for Mandy’s loving spirit and her prayers on our behalf. Thank You for the bond of unity in Christ that by Your Holy Spirit lifts us up closer to You in praise and thanksgiving as we pray for one another. Make us mindful each day for all that Christ Jesus has done for us that we may walk with You more closely and magnify You and give thanks for sisters and brothers who encourage by word and deed like Mandy, all a part of Your eternal family. 🕊🙏🧡
