A thankful attitude open windows of heaven through which spiritual blessings fall freely. All that God requires to be able to rain those blessings down upon us is our gratitude! It seems such a simple choice, yet we stumble over it almost everyday of our lives. Let God help you become more grateful as you can received bountiful blessings through those openings into eternity. As you go about your day, keep these things in mind. Throughout the Bible, God repeatedly command thankfulness because it is vital to our well-being, since God is our Creator, Savior and King. When you thank God we acknowledge how much he has done for you. This attitude brings joy both to us and God. Giving thanks is similar to priming a pump with water so that it will produce more water. Since thankfulness is one of the spiritual blessings that he has bestow on us, it will increase along with others when we prime God with thanksgiving. Remember that God is a God of all grace. When we fail in our endeavor to be thankful, simple ask him for forgiveness. As we freely receive this priceless gift-thinking about what it cost God, his only son on a cross for you and me. Look up to God and see spiritual blessings cascading down upon us through heave’s wide-open windows.

I WILL PRAISE THE LORD!

Psalm 105.jpgGive Praise to the Lord, proclaim his name, make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him, tell pf all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name, let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength, seek his face always.                               (PSALM 105:1-4)

I rejoice with each new day, being willing to follow Christ wholehearted where ever he may lead me. Anticipate blessings as we journey together. Since he has created this day of my life and presented to me free of charge, and I do received it gratefully. My natural tendency when I awake is to asses the day thinking how go or even how bad it maybe for me. I do this almost unconsciously, often basing my conclusions on something as trivial as the weather. I need to break this habit so I can be more receptive to Christ and his many blessings upon my life. A thankful attitude is immensely helpful. When I awake to find a day which is dark and raining, I still can thank him for the day anyway. Having done so, I will be less likely to complain about the weather. I need to also remember that he has arranged the conditions of my day. So that I can assume there is much good to be found in it. Rejoicing will help me find blessings in my day. When my circumstances are looking rather bleak I will be joyful in your love for me. I will enjoy knowing you Lord Jesus and just look for precious gifts that you have given along the path as we journey together. In faith, I need to be on the look out for good things both great and small. Also, because you are my Teacher, you will provide learning opportunities thru the day. When the end of my day is at hand I need to stop and look back at my many blessings. I need to take time to reflect all the gifts that your love has showering me with. I will let my mind wonder for a moments before I sleep to say Thank You Lord, that I have chosen to Praise You no matter what takes place in my life.

Alone With God

Psalm 118.jpgCome along with me, grab your cup of coffee or tea, to that special quiet place, and the only one with you is God. The day is very early and the sun is just starting to peak over the mountains where I am sitting, and it is very quiet. I begin my mornings with scriptures and today it is from the book of Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Rejoicing in this new day of my life, regardless of what my happen, and be willing to follow Jesus wherever he is leading me.  Anticipate blessings as I journey with together with him. Since God has created this day of our life and presented to us free of charge. He wants us to received it gratefully. Your natural tendency when you awaken is to asses the day before you, trying to discern how good (or bad) it will be. You or I do this almost unconsciously, often basing our conclusions on something as trivial as the weather. God urges us to break free from this habit so we can be more receptive to him and his blessings.  A thankful attitude is immensely helpful. If we awaken on a dark and gloomy day, still do with a thankful heart. Having done so, you will be much likely to grumble about the weather. Also, remember that God has arranged the conditions of your day. So you can assume there is much good to be found in it. Rejoicing will help us find many blessings in our day. If your circumstances are looking rather bleak than be joyful in Jesus our faithful companion. He wants us to enjoy him and look for precious gifts he has placed long the path we are to follow. In faith, be on the lookout for good things both great and small. Also remember he is our teacher and our trusted friend.
