A few weeks ago our family sat down to watch the famous "A Christmas Carol" on television.
It is such a wonderful movie.
I began pondering in my heart the statement that Tiny Tim made,"God Bless us, everyone!" We often go to God in prayer and we ask Him to bless our families, our health, our finances, our friends and so on....
After quite some time I have come to realize, we should be blessing God instead! We should bless Him with our families, our health, our finances, our friends etc...Do you understand what I mean when I say we should bless God?
Giving Him all that we claim to be ours! Giving Him the reign over our lives! Giving Him honor and praise at ALL times!
No matter what we are experiencing in life, nothing is so bad that we can't find a way to bless God in our daily living!
Thank Him for the salvation we have in Christ Jesus! Thank Him for breath today! Thank Him for death of a loved one,a brother or sister in Christ, for they are completely healed and rejoicing in Heaven with our Sweet Jesus! Thank Him for the set backs! Thank Him for your children! Thank Him for your spouse! Thank Him for your home, even if its not the one you've dreamt about! Thank Him for the food He has provided! Thank Him for the clothes on your back! Thank Him for the bed you sleep on each night! Thank Him for the birds of the air, the snow on the trees, the wind as it blows through your hair! Give Him Praise!
There are so many things we can be thankful for! There are SO many ways we can bless God this CHRISTmas season!
Instead of praying for God to bless us, lets pray,"God how can I bless You today?"
How can I put a smile on Your sweet face?
Let today be different! Let's bless our Savior for all He has done! AMEN!
