The More I Verbalize What I Am Thankful for the less cloudy my heart feels!– Lisa TerKeurst
Spiritual Fullness in Christ
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:6-7
There is no limit to what you can thank Jesus for today. Especially since the gifts you receive and enjoy today comes directly from Him.
Even if you had “one of those days” and you are facing a seemingly impossible challenge, begin sharing your concerns with Him and thanking Him that His mighty involvement in your life is bigger than any problem.
As you begin giving thanks and increase His presence in your life, His grace and power goes to work on your behalf!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights ~ James 1:17 (NKJV)
If times are tough, evaluate your willingness to receive. Encourage yourself to be willing and open to letting Him protect, comfort and bless you in your time of need. (thedailyverse.com)
