When you think of the grace of God, how do you respond? Do you sing? Pray? Praise? Smile? All of the above? God’s grace is truly… well – amazing!!!
When we perceive our spiritual blessings on a conscious level, it’s okay to take a moment to let God know how grateful we are for those supernatural gifts from Him. Precious moments make us feel closer to God too, don’t they? The other day, I was working on something in the living room while my husband was cooking in the kitchen. I just had to take a moment to thank God for my blessings!
The more we thank God for blessings, the better our lives get. How about giving your significant other a bear hug? It’s a tiny act of love, but when you’ve been presented with a fantastic meal or a sweet compliment out of the blue – it’s a good idea to recognize such positive behavior. We want it to continue, don’t we? 😉
God’s grace is the greatest of all blessings for all of mankind. If not for His grace, we would be lost – literally. Eternally lost. So when we feel a flood of gratitude because of it – it’s a good thing!
Sometimes expressing thanks to God for all He’s done is like popping an anti-anxiety piece of chocolate after a stressful day at work. It’s really better because the chocolate isn’t going to last, but when we sing, pray, praise and smile because of what God has done for us, it’s a lasting experience. It seems to make every aspect of life that much better, doesn’t it?
Don’t wait for Thanksgiving to begin thanking God for His grace, mercy and love. No one will ever love you like He does! Count your blessings – big and small. God has given us so much to be thankful for – and it takes more than just one day out of the year to thank Him sufficiently. 🙂
