This is the time of year where we remember to have a grateful heart filled with the attitude of thankfulness. As we are Seeking God, I hope these verses will inspire us to serve up your grateful heart all year not only for the sake of your own attitude but for the sake of furthering Christ’s kingdom and that others may see Him through you.
Colossians 3:15-16 reminds of our calling to let peace reign in our hearts and to be thankful. We can then be known for a grateful heart and Christ can be glorified through them. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, for to this you were called as members of one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. (BSB)
This Thanksgiving let's cook up and serve some grateful attitudes. Let us be the light to brighten the day. Enjoy these verses that will help you keep your focus on a heart full of thanksgiving.
I love the verse that reminds us to sing a joyful noise unto the Lord. Why? Let’s just say I may not have inherited the voice of a songbird. However, The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. Psalm 28:7 (NLT)
I love this verse. Let’s burst out in songs of thanksgiving, not because we’re songbirds, but because of our hearts overflowing with joy.
That wasn’t enough to convince you to burst out in song. Add these two to your playlist. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. Psalm 95:2 (NASB)
Then I will praise God's name with singing, and I will honor him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30 (NLT)
As God’s children, we are to Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4-5 (NIV)
May you remember as you embrace this holiday season to put on your attitude of gratitude for all of God’s faithfulness. Not only His faithfulness to all the generations but to your very own heart.
As believers, we can count on living this life with a kingdom perspective. We don’t have to put our hope and faith in this shakable life. We have a home that is unmovable and unshakable. This holiday let this hope be our ultimate reason to be filled with gratitude.
Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be filled with gratitude, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. Hebrews 12:28 (BSB)
As the busyness of this season seems to engulf us all, may we stop to take the time to not only remember Christ but to come before Him with hearts full of thanksgiving!
Have a wonderful holiday season this year!
