Overflow thankfulness // 11-04-18

“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Colossians‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

When I am standing firm on the unshakable rock that is Jesus it doesn’t mean that tough things won’t come my way, but when I know I’m not facing these things on my own, and I have the security and assurance of God with me, and His power and wisdom available to me, anxiety gets displaced by thankfulness. Lord, I don’t know how people make it through without You! As I look to You today, and as I put my trust in You, may I be mindful of all that I have to be thankful for, rather than fixated on problems and how to fix them, and may that overflow of thanks keep me close to You, on track and in Your peace, Amen 😊
