I agree some many statements are commercialized, however the other day I really needed to be reminded of God’s goodness while i was sitting in traffic. As I looked over at the car diagonal from me I saw a bumper sticker that said, “God is Lord and King.” I smiled and loved that God used that to bring me back to him and to give him thanks.

That’s so true! Gratitude is everywhere but sometimes I think we really miss God’s blessings and experiencing true thankfulness.

Yes! Our perspective becomes so narrow focused that we miss out on all God has so richly blessed us with.

I’m not an overly thankful person, so it’s about cultivating it in me. I was in the habit of writing down my gifts and during that time my whole mindset changed. Noticing all the blessings in my life causes me to have a different perspective!

That’s a great idea! That shift of perspective makes such a difference, doesn’t it?

When was the last time you took in creation simply to see, wonder at, and give thanks for it? Spending time in nature never seizes to overwhelm my heart with joy! Being in the midst of God’s creations is so refreshing and renewing. I absolutely need to do it more!

so blessed … especially those short poerms…. very rightly said that we need to know where our stand is and worship Him in His place.

Worship genuinely flows so freely when we remember how holy and beautiful He is!

We need to be thankful IN every circumstance, not FOR every circumstance. We do not rejoice in evil. But we praise God in the midst of suffering.
