Giving Thanks in All Things \o/ Jesus !!
✞ Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.✞
~ Colossians 3:15-17
Have you ever noticed that some Bible verses seem easier to memorize than to put into practice? One that immediately comes to mind is this one ...
✞ In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus ✞ ~1 Thess. 5:18.
Scripture encourages us always to voice our gratitude to the Lord, no matter what we're facing. Why? Because when we focus on God instead of the problem, we realize, He's already given us victory. You may have to remind yourself repeatedly, but you will benefit greatly from the peace that awaits.
God bless you in the days and weeks ahead as you 'prepare' your heart to 'receive' the Holy Gift of Jesus once again this holiday season. He can fill any void in your life, and He can mend and heal a broken life .. Remembering what Jesus has done for all God's children by keeping Christ in Christmas.
Prayers and blessings,
