Trust and Thankfulness



"Trust and thankfulness will get you safely through this day. 
Trust protects you from worrying and obsessing. 
Thankfulness keeps you from criticizing and complaining." 
(Jesus Calling)

Sometimes the situations we find ourselves in can keep us from entering into the joy of the day. And at those times, it is good to remember these two words. Trust. And Thankfulness. In the midst of some extra busy weeks, and in the midst of concerns and cares, I am reminded. To trust. And to be thankful.

"Keeping your eyes on Me is the same thing as trusting Me.
 It is a free choice that you must make thousands of times daily." 
(Jesus Calling)

Taking our eyes off of our concerns; and instead, keeping our eyes on Jesus. A choice we make. And as we do, our hearts are opened up to receive His unlimited Love and Strength.

"I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources, 
He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. 
Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him." 
(Ephesians 3:16-17a)

  2. Trust and thankfulness, you're right, a powerful combination-and easy to rember paired together. :)
