Personalizing Col 3:15, 16

Somethin’ to think about:
“Whenever Satan reminds you about your past, remind him about his future.”

Lord, every single gift comes from You…Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”

(From James 1:7)   One Thousand Gifts   http://www.aholyexperience.com/

464.  “Whenever Satan reminds me of my past, I can remind him of his future.”
465. Anticipation of trip to S.C. to see family and friends this Friday through next Tuesday–like a hug from the Lord coming up
466. ” I will  let the peace and soul harmony which comes from Christ rule and act as umpire continually in my heart, deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in my mind.   I will let the peace of Christ keep me in tune with Him and other people. None of this going off and doing my own thing. I will let the peace that Christ  control my thinking and actions, dwelling in me in all it’s richness.  In that peaceful state to which as members of Christ’s one body I was also called to live, I will cultivate thankfulness and appreciation in my life, giving praise to God always.  I will let the Word of Christ have the run of the house, His message being completely at home in my heart and mind.    God wants His kids to teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom in spiritual things.  I will sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with His grace in my heart.  Yes,  I will  sing, sing my heart out to God! I will let every detail in my life—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.

  1. Dearest Paula, your sacrifices of praise thru Jesus honors and pleases your Father tremendously! He knows what it is costing you to praise Him in spite of how you are feeling. This morning, I read the following two chapters and these two verses stood out to me reminding me of you. I’m asking Him to touch you with His grace and allow to know/experience the NEARNESS of His presence; and also to give you restorative rest tonight…I love you, Esther

    Psalm 50:23 (NIV1984) – “He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me,
       and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God.”

    Hebrews 13:15 (NIV1984) – “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name.”

  2. Paula & John,
    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Praise is such a gift. Giving thanks in everything is what we should all strive to do daily. Unfortunately, I do not do it very well for I forget sometimes,yet I long to do it. I think a thanksgiving diary is a good idea and I must pray to be faithful to it. Counting your blessings as you are doing is wonderful.

    Lord please help me to do a list of blessings. Kathy G.
