Everything

I was honored to spend a some time with Jesus this morning before Titus woke up.  I wish it was more but, Titus was an early bird this morning.  God led me in His word to a wonderful chapter in the bible.  Colossians 3 was open in front of me.  I love the book of Colossians but a verse jumped off the page at me today.

Col. 3:17

“Everything you do or say should be done to obey Jesus your Lord.  And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus.”

I read this over and over again.  I love how God leads in His word and presses our heart with His truth.  I am thankful that His word guides and instructs us on how to live each day.  My focus each day needs to be obedience.  I love the second part of the verse as well.  Not only are we to be obedient but, we need to give thanks in ALL we do! 

I am thankful today for sunshine after a very wind-filled night.  I am thankful for my sweet boys and the snuggles they gave me this morning.  I am thankful that Jesus touches my heart and life in some way each day. 

What are you thankful for today?

  1. i’ve been camping in colossians too lately. good stuff right there. “christ in you, the hope of glory” — sheer magic.

    i’m thankful for the chance to be real—to be ME—with a friend.
