Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

stop, look up, and give thanks

‘Take 2 aspirin and call me in the morning.’
‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away.’
I grew up hearing sayings like these.

Here is a saying that is way more important and timeless.

‘It is good to stop, look up and say thank you! It is good to do this often.’

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2 (ESV)

Give thanks not just when things are going right. Even when things seem to be falling apart, we can be thankful that God is with us. He is at work in us and in the situations we face.

In those hard times, it is good to remember who God is and that we are His. It is good to cultivate a heart of thanksgiving.

“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.” Psalm 9:1-2 (ESV)

Psalm 28:7
“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)

‘It is good to stop, look up and say thank you! It is good to do this often.’

Selah,

til next time
