We here at Do Not Depart aim to provide tools and encouragement to abide in God’s Word. We want to “meditate on [His Word] day and night, so that [we] may be careful to do according to to all that is written in it” (Joshua 1:8), and we hope to help you do the same.
We need encouragement, study tips, new perspectives, and renewal, too. And we love how many wonderful believers have a presence on the internet to help encourage all of us to abide united as one body.
So, we thought we’d share some of our favorite tools with you today!

Great (and Grateful) Thanksgiving Posts
With Thanksgiving quickly arriving in the US, we’ve seen some magnificent posts focused on gratitude to our great God. Let a few of these posts inspire you to be thankful always!
- “Why Thanksgiving is Subversive (and How to Have the Best Thanksgiving Yet)” from Ann Voskamp. Love this line: “Here is always good if you look at it long enough.”
- “When You Don’t Feel Thankful” by Lindsey Bell at The M.O.M. Initiative. A good read for anyone who has experienced loss near the holidays or when we need a change in perspective.
- “Gratitude is the Catalyst” from (in)courage. On how gratitude spurs intention.
- “How Can We Give Thanks in All Circumstances?” from DesiringGod.org.
