Gratitude – The Quality of Being Thankful


I awake every morning with gratitude in my heart, beginning my day ‘thanking’ God for the things in my life, both material and spiritual. I find this both humbling and revealing. Humbling because God chose me. Revealing because it frames the endless things He has done in my life.

Give thanks to the God of heaven,
For His lovingkindness (graciousness, mercy, compassion) endures forever.
Psalm 136:26 AMP

In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV

Today, I thank each of you for viewing my Blog and sharing and liking my Posts. When I began this assignment I was not certain if my posts would be received (I had to catch myself, I found myself doubting the Maker). I contacted Barb Raveling, a renown Christian Blogger and Author, who shared, ‘when we do God’s work, the numbers do not matter. The posts placed today will live on, and the words may touch someone many years from now when God needs to touch them most.’

I share this comment with you, some new, some questioning, and some who just need to hear it again. Keep posting when God inspires you to share a scripture. He works through people, and His Word is designed to affect the lives of His people. We are, in effect, His scribes. A friend once told me, ‘if the context of what you are writing about does not match the Word, it is not of God.’  As such, I do not take this responsibility lightly and research the content inspired by God. I do not want to misrepresent the Word or engineer it to mean something it is not. I praise God for this responsibility, it is a blessing to me because it causes me to go deeper in the Word and hopefully a blessing to everyone who reads my posts.

It is with much gratitude that I am one of God’s children and a part of His family of believer’s. Have a blessed day.

Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord;  always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father.
Ephesians 5:18-20 NASB

Repost – Why did God create us?

Even More Beautiful


“God created me — and you — to live with a single, all-embracing, all-transforming passion — namely, a passion to glorify God by enjoying and displaying his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life. Enjoying and displaying are both crucial. If we try to display the excellence of God without joy in it, we will display a shell of hypocrisy and create scorn or legalism. But if we claim to enjoy his excellence and do not display itfor others to see and admire, we deceive ourselves, because the mark of God-enthralled joy is to overflow and expand by extending itself into the hearts of others…We waste our lives when we do not pray and think and dream and plan and work toward magnifying God in all spheres of life. God created us for this: to live our lives in a way that makes him look more like the…
