“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15
Today’s post is from Journey Through The Stillness (my personal spiritual journal.) There are some great quotes about thankfulness and joy. I will type them in bold, and hope that you take some time to think about them. Enjoy!
April 6, 2011 – Today I come to The Stillness with a thankful heart. At times I am blindsided by gifts from Him, totally unexpected. And at times I am so busy analyzing the what, when, where, how, and why that I forget to relax and enjoy. So today I come in awe and thanksgiving. Jesus says, “A thankful heart is a joyful heart whose joy is free to fly. Joy from a thankful heart knows no bounds. It is unstoppable, freely flowing to all it comes in contact with. Live in the joy, child. Do not focus on the doubts, pain, and fears of what was, is, and could be. Focus on what joy there is in the present moment. Tell all to train themselves to look for the blessings right in front of them. They are breathing, they are alive, they are themselves, they exist! Start simply with that and be joyful. The rest will fall into place. Live outwardly from a thankful heart.”
That last line says it all! If we live outwardly from a thankful heart, all else will fall into place. It won’t take long for our lives to be transformed. And, it won’t take long for others to be transformed by us! I am thankful for each one of you…God Bless.
