    Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart

    in Christianity

    With Thanksgiving just around the corner, There's of course some great cooking being done for family and friends to enjoy. But how often do you think of Christ and what he's done for us, giving and offering up his life and bringing great hope to a lost and dying world. There should be a difference in how we express ourselves during this time of the year and how the world expresses itself. Were way too quick to jump to Christmas with the key focus on Black friday and don't reflect enough on the cross, Christ awesome love for us and how he brought us up out of our slavery to sin. And so the question must be asked, do I have a grateful heart today? Am I depending way too much on gifts rather than the giver Himself? Do I complain more than expressing my grattitude for all the Lord has done? May God help us to truly reflect and focus on what really matters most, our relationship with God, our families and knowing that one day we will spend eternity with Him.

    I Should be Grateful

    in Art

    This weekend in the US is Thanksgiving weekend, where we eat too much and give thanks for all that we're grateful for. 

    But I have spoken with some women lately in some pretty desparate and emotionally abusive situations. Logic tells them that they should put up with the abuse because there's enough other good things in their life and they should be grateful.

    On any given day, there is an abundance to be grateful for: our health, our jobs, our friends and family. We absolutely should be grateful for those small miracles that surround us. But, we shouldn’t use those things as a crutch to keep us stuck in emotionally abusive relationships.

    We are, in fact, deserving of all the abundance life offers every day as well as deserving of being loved, honored and cherished in our relationships.

    Tell the Truth. Show up in Love. Live in Freedom.

    "Why Be Grateful?"

    in Christianity

    Research shows that consistently grateful people are happier, more energetic, more hopeful, more helpful, more empathic, more spiritual, more forgiving, and less materialistic. They’re also less likely to be depressed, anxious, lonely, envious, neurotic, or sick.

    Why would we not be grateful?  This is a discipline, a discipline of our mind, our will, and our nature.  We are hard wired by sin to complain, lament, bemoan, commiserate; regarding any circumstance we are experiencing. Even if we win the lottery we’ll complain about taxes and how many “new” friends we have.

    The lead of Jesus was to thank his father daily, eventually even thankful for the “cup” that would not pass from his life. Imagine what our lives would be like if we had a complaining Christ, a bitter Jesus?  Let’s make this Thanksgiving a hallmark event in our life, a commitment to live differently, love differently, and think differently.

    Thankful Heart Grateful Spirit

    in Christianity

    We are in the season where we are reminded to be thank for all God has done in our lives, and it also seems that it is at this time of the year that work becomes more laborious. Things are not going well, but thank God for worship. It is during our time of worship when lay our hearts before the Lord from him to change wherr we are reminded twhoo keep our eyes on Jesus for he keeps us in perfect peace.

    Life is hard enough without allowing the pressures of this world or the thoughts of others, to deflect our attention away from the one who holds our future. This is not an easy task it take practice because misery loves company. Why because people do not like feeling alone as if they are the only one. So let us worship the God holds are future and keeps us in perfect peace
