GIVE THANKS WITH A GRATEFUL HEART!

“Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” (Psalm 103:2)

Anddd just like that, another exam is now behind me. Thank you Lord. The feeling of finishing a difficult exam and passing is incredibly gratifying especially when you’re running on very little sleep. These are moments of rewards that make the long days ahead worth it….

I have learned in every circumstance that comes my way, to give thanks. In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give.We also need to remember from where God has brought us. When times get tough and you think you have nothing left to give, think about the goodness of God and all that He has done for you. Sometimes we need to rehearse our faith to get through times of doubt. We all doubt ourselves. We all question if God is even in our situation. But when we remember the many trials God has brought us out of, we can feed on his faithfullness in times of need.

If you feel the nudge of discontent today. Go to Jesus and re-familiarize yourself with His love and allow Him to to be the lifeline in your life. Let trust and patience ground you in your current situation. Keep thanking, keep seeking, keep asking, keep desiring and keep on loving Him.

Position yourself as a child at your father’s feet, waiting for the next great adventure with Him. That’s what I’m doing….God bless.😊

Blessings and love….

  1. I really enjoyed your post, well done! We all too often forget the many blessings that God has given and presently gives every single day. We need to reflect on that more and be thankful always, especially what Jesus has done for us. Keep up the good work, look forward to more from you!

  2. YES! I also like Matthew Chapter 6 Verses 26-34 in moments of worry, etc:
    26 Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they?
    27 And which of you by taking thought, can add to his stature by one cubit?
    28 And for raiment why are you solicitous? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they labour not, neither do they spin.
    29 But I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these.
    30 And if the grass of the field, which is to day, and to morrow is cast into the oven, God doth so clothe: how much more you, O ye of little faith?
    31 Be not solicitous therefore, saying, What shall we eat: or what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we be clothed?
    32 For after all these things do the heathens seek. For your Father knoweth that you have need of all these things.
    33 Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.
    34 Be not therefore solicitous for to morrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.

  4. Amen and thank YOU! You have reminded me today of what the Apostle Paul wrote: I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength (Philippians 4:12-13 NIV).
    When we take the time to look beyond our situation and into the eyes of our Lord, we can have our hearts and minds brought to the place where we can be thankful simply because we are his.
    Blessings,

    PS: Congratulations on passing the exam! I don’t miss those days

  5. Proud of you keep pressing in the Lord. Great reminder.

    If we can’t pursue God within life’s challenging moments, we may never pursue him at all. If we can only connect with God when everything feels calm and under control, we may miss him entirely! And part of faithfulness is finding the strength to press into hard and difficult places, trusting that God will meet us in and through them. If we can do this, we will learn to give thanks in every season of life!

    β€œGive thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

    Father, thank you that you are always with us, in good times and in bad. Give us hearts of gratitude that seek you in every circumstance, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    How can we pursue God with a grateful heart today, even in the midst of the trials and pain you face?

    God Bless You Richly. β™₯οΈπŸ˜‰
