God bless you,
Today’s writing will be all about giving thanks. And how we can show to God that we are grateful. You’ll read this and think this is something you will do automatically but in reality it goes completely in a other way. Explanation; When you wake up in the morning your supposed to be thankful and grateful that you saw an other day. Instead we complain, about things of the day before or get angry for every little thing that don’t please you. Complaining about the weather etc. You are waiting for a miracle but you can’t be grateful for the biggest miracle, you are alive, you have a new chance with God. Thank the Lord for this opportunity and stop worrying.
Psalm 69:30-32 KJV: 30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. 31 This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs. 32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
Psalm 95:2-3 KJV: 2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. 3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
Thank God for everything you have and stop complaining about you don’t have. Thank God for a house, for food, for people among you that loves you, for health, for clothes, for being alive, for the fact that He sent His son to die so we could be saved. What you have, you wore not born with, you had to work hard to achieve it. But don’t think that you did all this. It is Lord in your favour. Because of Him your alive, you can eat etc.
I will tell you a short story: I know this young girl, she loves clothes. She had a few dresses, but she complains about not having any. Till one day she realised there people who don’t have any clothes. So she began to thank God for every piece of clothe she owned. You know what everyday she enter that closet of hers, and thank the Lord she will come out with a piece of clothe she didn’t knew she possess or something that is new. (you can wonder who that girl is)
Don’t forget to be thankful in every moment and in everything you do. The glory is not yours it is Gods.
With loving regards,
