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…

Spiritual Wardrobe

Spiritual Wardrobe

Grace invites us to try on a new kind of wardrobe. One that God has chosen for us: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Did you just audibly sigh? Don’t worry, I know. The godly, spiritual wardrobe doesn’t quite fit! But I know a Master Taylor who can help us: The Holy Spirit. When we invite Jesus to live in our heart the Holy Spirit starts working on our new kind of wardrobe. Gently he keeps on working on us…

Are You Trying to Use God?

Are You Trying to Use God?

I just love how Jesus fed 5000 people with two fish and five loaves of bread. We think 5 plus 2 is 7. But God’s way of thinking is way different, way bigger, and way better. What was the secret of Jesus? Then Jesus took the bread. When he had given thanks, he distributed it to those who were sitting there. He did the same with the fish, each getting as much as they wanted.When they had plenty to eat,…
