A reminder for today
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. (Colossians 1:15-16)
How was you weekend, my friend? We are moving to a new home and this weekend we started to pack. Gosh, I think after this move we will have much less stuff, because I am going to bless other with some of the unnecessary stuff that we love to hoard and we never use them as we hoped we would. This Sunday was our “Thankful Sunday”. Our church does this every year as we look back at the year that now comes to an end and we reflect back on what God has done for us. We write down what we trust God for in the year to come and we show our gratitude to an awesome God. So for a moment I was lost in all the events of this year and I realized how much God loves us. As I started to think of all that He did for me and my family I was just out of words, for He is just amazing. But some might come to this part of the year and look back and think that God abandoned them. They might not feel that there is anything to be grateful for. You see victory leads to gratitude and gratitude leads to victory. So we need to overcome the challenges we face is order to see His hands at work and then that should make us grateful in what the Lord has done. This gratitude will make us stronger and so we will be more victorious in life. I believe that we should always be grateful and tell God about it. We must glorify Him always for all He does. Even in our hardest moments we should sing praises and be thankful. Paul, in his darkest moments praised God and he was thankful. If we do not feel the same it is because he saw something that we are still missing.
He saw that Jesus is the visible image of an invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.
So today, just be grateful. Let the joy of Jesus Christ be the light that flows from you.
Lord, today I am just grateful. Thank you for all the wonderful people all over the world that reads you blog and shares in your glory. Thank you for all that you do for all of us each day. I pray that you will be the light in our darkest moments so that we will see you and be thankful for what you do. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
