I love how there’s always SOMETHING to be grateful for – no matter how small. The power of thanksgiving is one thing. The power of thanking God is supernatural. It opens wide the doorway to His presence… (Psalm 100) and His peace.
I enjoyed this passage below recently with a group I was coaching. I bless you with it too!
4 Be cheerful with joyous celebration in every season of life. Let your joy overflow!
5 And let gentleness be seen in every relationship, for our Lord is ever near.
6 Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life,
7 then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ.
8 Keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.
9 Put into practice the example of all that you have heard from me or seen in my life and the God of peace will be with you in all things.
