Overflowing with thankfulness

This morning I find myself becoming overwhelmed by Him and His continual presence in my life as a wife, mother and homekeeper. Tuesday I heard His voice loud and clear...

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him,
rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Col 2:6-7

Imagine if we were to truly on a daily continual basis live in Him... being rooted and built up in Him that we would be daily strengthend in the faith and the overflowing with thankfulness that would spring forth from the broken gates of surrender! Today I am thankful for...

*children... they are a blessing from the Lord!
*stations of encouragement found through out our house
*moments of difficult but sweet correction
*surrender in a stubborn heart
*humbleness with in a marriage
*the work of the Spirit among the hearts of young people
*courage to speak the truth
*voices to remind us of the suffering and glory
*a husband that isn't content with wasting time for the gospel

May I continue to live in Him today and overflow with a heart of thankfulness... He is good.

JOYfully in Him,

To be "overflowing with thankfulness" means we need to be LOOKING for His blessings, doesn't it? And it means that we should be thanking Him privately AND publicly, so that HIS great name is honored. Thank you for reminding me of this.
