Sacrifice of Thanksgiving


"Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God."
(Psalm 50:14a)

When life is easy and good, thankfulness overflows from our hearts without much effort at all. But when difficult things come our way, our words of thanks become more of a sacrifice. Offered up in trust, in love. Maybe through tears. And the result is springtime in our hearts, even when it may be cloudy outside.

"As you bring Me the sacrifice of thanksgiving, 
regardless of your feelings, 
My Spirit is able to work more freely within you.
 This produces more thankfulness and more freedom, 
until you are overflowing with gratitude." 
(Jesus Calling)
