Gratitude ~ Access to Worship !

Beginning our new week with Worship ...

provides our access ~

 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering 
and into His courts with praise! 
Be thankful and say so to Him, 
bless and affectionately praise His name!
For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.
Psalm 100.4-5

What are the benefits in your life right now?
Take time today to recount and recover your heart
in the Spirit of GRATITUDE ~

What Goodness, Mercies, Loving Kindnesses
are you experiencing today?  this week?  this month?
Journal them.
Let them be permanent markers on your Faith Journey
with the God Who Loves YOU!
Who smiles on You !
Who makes His face Shine upon you
and Gives you Peace!

Meditate on Gratitude
and God's GOODNESS will increase in your eyes ~
God will send forth His LIGHT & His TRUTH
and lead you to More understanding
of God's Reality in your life...

Your Faith and Trust

and that 
overcomes dissatisfaction ~
the thief that robs 
relational JOY

God is Worth It!

depends upon it !

'If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation,
you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude,
a feeling that nurtures the soul."

Hear it on Sunday, use it on Monday.
Wonderful little saying.
Tomorrow after church, between services, my church's bookstore is selling my new book, which is fun and I hope the book will bless a lot of folks.
Happy Sunday and week.

I loved this one! The "Hear it on Sunday, Use it on Monday" phrase should be printed on the church bulletins!

I hope I never cease to be grateful for all the gifts God has given me. The quote by Rabbi Kushner was especially meaningful to me today.

I truly DO try to express and exhibit gratitude. If not, someone needs to tap my shoulder very hard and remind me where I came from and where I would be now, if He hadn't broken into my life and turned it around. YEP! Almost always filled with gratitude.

Gratitude for what our Lord provides, like obedience, is a form of worship.

Such a pleasant feel to your blog...and you started this post with a verse I memorized as a new Christian-Psalm really is rich with meaning. Thanks for sharing these thoughts and photos and verses. And thanks for linking up to B&BB on Bible Love Notes. May you be blessed!
