Vital signs-Thursday, November 26th, 2020

“Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103:1-5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Growing up it was common for me to hear a prayer that started with,

“Lord make us thankful.”

I suppose this is why so many of God’s family, including me at times, think that thankfulness is an obligation, and to be a special dedicated time to give back our thanks to God for His goodness. I’m starting to see things differently about thankfulness. I no longer think of it as an obligation or a special time of giving thanks. 

I now see it as a life perspective, something that I wake with, go to bed with, and declare throughout my day. It is a privilege, a responsibility, an up-lifter and orientation for my day and my life. Having a thankful spirit and allowing the fruit of this thankfulness to invade every aspect of my life has created a very special benefit for me.

Take just a minute and list a few things your thankful for and spend some time telling God how you feel about those particular things.

A Thankful life or a fearful life- The choice is ours!

I pray that you’ll join me in the Thankful life.

Your Vital to me-and I’m Thankful for you!
