This morning I just feel the need to encourage you to focus on the goodness of God. Look for all the ways He has been and is being good to you. Anticipate seeing His goodness today!
Go ahead and express your thankfulness to God. Choose to worship and praise this morning. No matter where you are, He is there and He is always good. Praise is a powerful weapon of warfare.
I’ve been in Colossians with a couple of praying Mama friends. This small book is full of encouragement. This morning what stood out to me, was the repetitive phrase to give thanks, or be thankful. We are commanded to give thanks. I was reminded, recently, that if God gives us a command, He will provide what we need to obey it.
What are you thankful for today? The day is just getting started, but I am so thankful for a phone call I got last night from one of my best friends (ever) from college. I had not heard her voice in a long time. That call melted my heart, it was God letting me know He sees me and hears me.
I would love to know how God shows up in your circumstances today. Shoot me a text or email me😊💕. Let’s encourage each other today sharing how God shows up. Waiting with breathless anticipation of how He will work on your behalf today. I am Praying for you!
6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2: 6 & 7
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3: 15-17
2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful Colossians 4:2
