It’s easy to give thanks when everything is going well; however, not so much when life blindsides you. You are what you dwell on. If I continually tell myself that I am tired, rather than attempting to begin my day, I will never begin my day. We have power in our tongue, and when we do not choose our words carefully, we could find ourselves struggling to get the victory.
On the other hand, if we choose to have a great day, our attitude will change so that we will have a great day.
It doesn’t matter how much we tell the Lord thanks for all that he has done; it will never be enough. Do you realize that he could have left us without a savior? His love for us is greater than all our sins. I am thankful that I can call on his name, and he will hear my petitions. Living for him, gives us a peace that passes all understanding.
I know that I can never repay the debt of love that I owe, but I will do my best to live for him and give him the honor due unto his name for the rest of my days; yes, I am thankful because I know who I used to be and how Jesus came into my broken life and gently began to restore my soul. I was lost, but now I’m found.
Being thankful is made out to be difficult in much of society, but if we want to truly live free from bondage, we must give thanks, so with that in mind, this week’s Lattereign gives the Lord the thanks that he deserves: Thanks for all you’ve done.
