Everything Is a Gift from God

Everything Is a Gift from God

It is the month of November so every good blogger is to write a post on gratitude, right? Maybe that’s true but I am not writing this post because I should do it. I am writing this post because I wholeheartedly have come to believe everything is a gift from God. Truly. I did think so before but now I also know it in my heart. Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God…

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

One of the things we forget or take for granted is that we are called into fellowship with Jesus. God is not done with us when we are saved. He invites us into an intimate relationship with Jesus. That’s an ongoing thing like any other relationship. And not just on Sundays. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Cor. 1:9, NIV) We are to live our whole lives in Jesus. We need…

Good Riddance 2020

Good Riddance 2020

Are you ready for the New Year? I am, at least, ready to say goodbye to 2020. Good riddance, right? 2020 is a year we won’t forget easily. I had such high hopes for it, yet it was nothing I had hoped for. Yet I am thankful. Because I learned a lot this year, I bet you did too. And, most of all, I am thankful because God is good all the time. The Lord is good,A strength and stronghold in the day of…

How to Live in Thankfulness

How to Live in Thankfulness

Isn’t it interesting – and frustrating – there are things we need to relearn again and again? How do we forget the good things so quickly? Why do we lose our way so fast? We just had our summer vacation and we’re already stressed out. It’s time to relearn to live in thankfulness. One of the most essential things in Christian living is to live in thankfulness. It might seem too simplistic or too obvious and we might think we…

Thankfulness Brings Blessings

Thankfulness Brings Blessings

Thankfulness might seem like a waste of time but it’s not. Quite the opposite, actually. Thankfulness blesses us more than we can imagine. How do I know this, you ask. I know by experience. Also, the Bible tells us so. Thankfulness welcomes God into our life. And when that happens, everything changes. Because the power of God is more than we can imagine. And this is the power that is not forceful. Instead, when invited, it brings peace and joy. And…

Thanksgiving Prayers

Thanksgiving Prayers

Thanksgiving is not something we do once a year, it’s a way of life for Christians. Every breath we take is a gift from God. Hence, thanksgiving prayers are a natural part of communicating with God. Our prayers don’t need to be eloquent but sometimes we are looking for some depth or inspiration and then the prayers uttered by saints gone before us can do the trick. Here I have my favorite thanksgiving prayers for you to enjoy and share….

Live a Life Worthy of the Lord

Live a Life Worthy of the Lord

‘You are worth it’, says a commercial to get you to buy a product. The number one way to get into debt is to think you deserve to have certain things. Don’t try to buy your worth. You are worthy just because you are made by God Almighty. You worthiness comes from the Lord. There’s nothing you can buy or do that would make you worthy of God but his grace. But his grace is all you ever need to…

Praise God for the Peace of Christ

Praise God for the Peace of Christ

I love different Bible translations. Years ago I wrote a thanksgiving post based on the Message version of this verse and thought it was so inspiring. Today I read the same verse from the Amplified Bible and saw it in a totally different light. So here’s my this year’s thanksgiving post. Praise God for the peace of Christ. Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding…

Finding Daily Hope

Finding Daily Hope

Many people count their blessings. I do too. I offer thanks for them in my evening prayer. Then I move onto my concerns and petitions. Then I do something that brings me peace and lots of hope. What could that be? Being peaceful and hope-filled is the best way to fall asleep, don’ t you think? I’ve kept my feet on the ground,     I’ve cultivated a quiet heart. Like a baby content in its mother’s arms,     my soul is a…

Practicing Thankfulness

Practicing Thankfulness

Practicing thankfulness is important. There are scientific studies even to prove that practicing thankfulness is healthy in many ways. It helps us to concentrate on the good in our lives for sure. Just like Mr. Roger’s mom used to say to him when he was a boy and saw scary things in the News: “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Look for the blessings. You will always find things to be grateful for. Practicing…
