1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV) Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Today I stop to show my gratitude to God and take the time to say:
“Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me!”
“If I had ten thousand tongues, I could not thank you enough for all you are doing in my life”…
Everyday is not Sunday, but life still just keeps on getting better and better as I yield my life to you dear Jesus and begin to focus on God all by himself and pray for other’s rather than focusing on my problems and what I don’t I have… I realized a few months back when I really sick and in tremendous chest pain that it’s not about me, but it’s about “Jesus!”
God has always been my all and all, and that right there makes is to easy to pause and say
