Thankfulness

Post by Jocose » Fri May 18, 2018 9:46 pm

Thankfulness

I've had this overwhelming heartfelt feeling of thankfulness to God over these last several weeks and days. I'm not sure why. Its nothing that I did.

Despite my ongoing personal trials and circumstances *that we all suffer* over the years I've come to realize that being thankful to God is important to him and us.


Colossians 2;7
Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness

Any other scripture come to mind?
"And for Freds sake, DO NOT point anyone towards CPS or you'll put them off of both Christianity and pipe smoking forever." ~ FredS

David all throughout the Psalms. No matter what he faced, he gave thanks. Often for things that hadn't even happened yet. I've been trying to be like that the past couple years

Due to the stuff that happens to us mortals, it can be a long time coming but God can create in us a thankful heart.

This is a good one Jo.
I've spent 30 minutes reflecting on this and writing my thoughts. Then deleting them. But yes. Thankfulness.

Psalm 34:1-3...
1 I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
2 I will glory in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.
