How often do you use those words?
Thank You is a powerful pair of words you can give away.
When someone does something nice for you, goes the extra mile, or just looks like they can use some appreciation, say THANK YOU! It will not only brighten their day, but it will give you a joy boost as well.
How often do you say “thank you” to God?
Many times we get so caught up in day to day life and the cares of this world, that we forget to say those two little words, Thank YOU. We should be thanking God throughout every day of our lives. He deserves it.
Being thankFUL is the action behind the words “thank you.” You can “say” thank you until your blue in the face…BUT…if you are not truly thankful it is worthless. You are just going through the motions.
Thankfulness is a matter of the heart. We must get our minds and hearts on God. We must allow the Holy Spirit to help us. We must always try to see what we can be thankful for in EVERY situation. Once we have mastered this, we will not only bubble over with thankfulness, but we will have a joy that no demon in hell could ever take away!
Scriptures to help you on your road to thankfulness:
- Psalm 100
- 1 Corinthians 15:57
- 2 Corinthians 2:14
- Psalm 116:17
I also recommend looking through more of the Psalms and in your concordance for thankfulness. Get the Word in you and thankfulness will begin to flow out of you.
Daddy God, thank You for the birds and the flowers. Thank You for the beauty all around me. Thank You for the sun and the moon and the stars. Thank You for creating me. Thank You for loving me. Thank You that I have eyes, ears, and taste. Thank You that I can smell cookies baking in the oven. Thank You for the foods that I eat. Thank You for a roof over my head and clothes on my back. Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your Son. Thank You for the gift of my children. Thank You for my beloved husband. Thank You for all that You are and all that You do. Thank You for being You. Thank You for being Truth. Thank You for being Love. Thank You for your Compassion and Mercy in my life. Thank You, thank You, THANK YOU! In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

In His Love and Service,
