This is how I want to live my life, with hands lifted high, my life lifted high in praise to God.
As Thanksgiving draws near, I have been reflecting a lot about giving thanks. How important and maybe necessary it is to express my gratitude to others and especially to the Lord.
Ann Voskamp, as always, posted a very thought provoking post recently on “Thanksliving“. This time of year many of us do focus on giving thanks. We begin a gratitude journal, we post things we are thankful for on Facebook or our blogs. But Ann’s post dives into the fact that our thanks need to go beyond just the “giving” of thanks to the “living” thanks.
Living our lives as a continual gift back to the Lord.
Not just voicing our thanks but asking the Lord what we are to do with it.
Living a life of gratitude is living a life of doing.
Seeds Family Worship desires to see God’s Word in every home. From now through Thanksgiving, Seeds Family Worship is offering their Seeds of Praise Vol. 3 as a free download. This is one way they are living out a life of praise and gratitude to the Lord, by blessing others with one of their albums.
I am seeking the Lord about this “thanksliving” and what it would mean for me. I don’t want to live my life just voicing my thanks, but living it out.
Living a life of gratitude does not come and go with the seasons or the holidays.
But it should be who we are all the time.
Enjoy your free album from Seeds Family Worship, then ask the Lord what this “thanksliving” might mean for you!
