Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

God’s will?

What is God’s will for your life?  1 Thessalonians tells us three things that are God’s will for every believer.  I have room for growth.  How about you?

“Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NASB)

Rejoice always – when things are going great it is easy to rejoice. Even when things seem to be falling apart we can rejoice in the knowledge that Jesus holds all things together. (Colossians 1:17) We are not alone. (Matthew 28:20) God loves us! (John 3:16)

Pray without ceasing –  Being aware of the presence of God in our day all day long – God is with us. His fingerprints are all around us. May we continue to cultivate an awareness of the presence of God.

Give thanks – Thanksgiving is approaching. A time set aside to remember and be thankful. While I enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, giving thanks should be a daily thing for us as believers in Christ. A heart of gratitude expressed through our words and actions is a powerful demonstration of what Christ is doing in our lives.

Let me say that again.

A heart of gratitude expressed through our words and actions is a powerful demonstration of what Christ is doing in our lives.  (gg)

God’s will for your life is to rejoice, pray, and give thanks.Whatever else He leads you to do, these three things will be part of it.
