“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28 (ESV)
If we are thankful to Jesus for no other reason than the peace (rest) He offers to all who have faith, then that alone would be enough. We who believe do not need to labor or dwell in the weight of the world once we know and accept the miraculous grace given to us by God.
Our gratitude and thankfulness for the relationship with the Lord starts with His love for us. He gives and asks us to receive. And once we have received, He commands us to give to others so they might receive, be healed, and set free from their trials and burdens.
- Gratitude for His love.
- Gratitude for His faithfulness.
- Gratitude for His mercy.
- Gratitude for His provision.
How many more aspects of Jesus’ character could be listed to explain the breadth of our praise for Him?
As the holiday season of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s kicks into full gear in the weeks ahead, let us rise every morning giving thanks to our God.
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.” Psalm 28:7 (ESV)
We shall have an “attitude of gratitude”… overflowing with the abundance of love the Lord has given us. He told us that with the power of God we could be used to heal broken hearts, change unhealthy thoughts, turn souls from crisis and chaos to contentment and peace.
The greatest present we can give our families, friends and neighbors is the gift of love. Share it wholeheartedly – unceasingly these last months of 2022.
