"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
~ Psalm 118:1 ~
Happy Tuesday, Friends! I don't know about y'all, but I find myself talking to the Lord all throughout the day. I have said it before, and I will say it over and over again, I believe in the power of prayer! I love prayer time, and when I get my quiet time in the morning, that is what I always begin with. But what about all throughout the day? It may not be what is considered as "quiet time" (because let's be real, it is difficult to catch quiet time throughout the day), but I not only find it important but I also find it such a comfort to know that I can talk to God at any time of any day.
But what happens when I feel like I can't find the words to say? When this happens, I simply give thanks. The Bible tells us to give thanks in all circumstances. And goodness, is there so much to give thanks for! I always begin by saying "Lord, thank you..." and everything else that I'm trying to say just falls into place. Prayer is our connection to God, and what a powerful connection it is. It allows us to feel a deeper awareness of his presence. Sometimes I feel as if I have so much to pray for that I become overwhelmed and can't find the words to say. To me, this is the worst way to feel when connecting with the Lord, and this is exactly how the Lord does not want us to feel! So many times, I just have to sit back and remind myself that the Lord knows everything going on in my life. And I also have way too many things to give thanks for that I shouldn't become so overwhelmed in my prayer time. So, connect with God often through prayer and do not let all the things in life overwhelm you in your prayer time with God. Simply give thanks when you can't find the words to say.
I can already tell you a few things that I know you can be thankful for. You have a Heavenly Father that not only loves you more than you could ever imagine, but he also gave his only Son to die for your sins so that you can have everlasting life. What amazing promises we have through Jesus. And there are so many things to give thanks for.
"Lord, thank you for your unfailing love that is fresh as the morning and sure as the sunrise." Y'all how comforting is that?! A love that is fresh as the morning as sure as the sunrise. Just as we can count on the sun to rise each morning, we can also count on the Lord's love for us in the same way.
I like to put this invitation out there every once and awhile. As always, if y'all ever want to chat about anything with me, are in need of a verse to cling to, or ever have a prayer request you'd like for me to join in on praying for, please do not hesitate to shoot me an email!
Thanks for reading!
