I trust you are well.
In a noisy world that we live in, do you sometimes listen to yourself talk? If you do, what do you hear? Thankfulness? Your words are a reflection of your thoughts and your thoughts reflects you!
Take a second or two, pause and think over your utterances in the past hour or half hour...what do you sound like? Grateful? Complaining?
Until you can think, you won't be able to thank.
Your level of gratitude shows in how you talk to God. David in Psalm 100:1(MSG) says we should enter with the password 'thank you'. Let me ask you, do you unlock your phone only when you're in the mood? Emphatic No! Irrespective of how you feel, you use your phone, you must unlock it either by putting your password, pattern or fingerprint. In the same vein, we should not allow our emotions deter our gratitude to God.
On days we feel good, let's praise, days we feel otherwise, we would praise still. Sometimes when nothing is working, doing what we know -like praising is the answer. Hab3:17-19
God inhabits our praise, He rides on it. Not to say that without it, He won't ride...;)When we praise, He is, when we do not, He is. Our cup of thanksgiving helps us not God.
So, don't be a show-off praiser and a backyard murmurer. If you do that, the bible says you got your reward already.
Sis, i dare you to raise your cup of thanksgiving not only in the open but also in your closet.
As the year comes to an end, let's maintain a thanksgiving attitude. If we knew how many Nano second miracles we've enjoyed, how many unprayed petitions that's been answered. He deserves our Hallelujah, and we are giving it all to Him.
Loads of love,
