The Trade off of Thanksliving

Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him. For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever. Psalm 100:4, 5 (MSG

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. May you enter deeply into His presence this week as we all count our blessings.

But, not just that. Not just this week. Let’s live our entire lives in Thanksliving to Him from whom all blessings flow. This practice makes it possible to pray without ceasing. Let’s thank Him in every situation. Let’s remember to pause and thank Him for all the little kisses He gives us throughout our day.

When we are occupied with thanking Him, there is no time to worry or complain

The negative thought patterns gradually fade away to a grateful heart. Bitterness for joy. Worry for peace. The sting out of adversity….GONE.

It’s a trade off. We give Him thanks. He gives us joy.

Thanksliving carries us deeper into His presence. Our thoughts on Him. Though circumstances may remain the same, we have changed.

And then the circumstances do change because the light has been switched on and we see things from His perspective.

That is why the password into deep presence with our Jesus is “Thank you!”

May we all be overwhelmed in the presence of God. My we always be Thanksliving
