Giving Thanks to God

Thanking God for all his goodness with us is an expression of the grateful heart. Giving thanks to God changes all things, changes us inside and transforms our outer atmosphere.

The Bible says in Psalm 100:4

Enter His gates with a song of thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, bless and praise His name.

Source

The Bible urges us to thank God at all times. We must always enter his presence by thanking him.

There are two things that denote our thanksgiving. First, we manifest our total dependence on God. Second, we express our gratitude to Him for his works in our lives.

Giving thanks is a way to praise God. And according to the Word of God we can do it in many ways. How we can do it?

  • Signing
  • Praying
  • Giving to others
  • In all circumstances
  • With our brothers and sister in the faith

Why are you grateful today? What reasons do you have to thank God, not in a given season, but at all times?

May our hearts, thoughts and actions always manifest the gratitude we have for God and his wonderful works.

Thankful and Blessed Bible Journaling Printable

Hello! Summer is almost ending but, fall is coming… I’ve been working these days with a new printable for my bible journaling time. I wanted to make something inspired in fall and autumn. I love this season! The colors, the fragrance of apple and spices, everything!

I also was inspired by a few bible verses that I will share with you:

1 Thessalonians 5:18
in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanksto God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Chronicles 16:8 [ Psalm of Thanksgiving ] O give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; Make His deeds known among the peoples.

The word of God says to us that we must give thanks in every situation, because that it is the will of God.

I hope you can enjoy this freebie / printable inspired in those verses and in this season that is coming soon!

How to replace anxiety with peace.

Anxiety is a feeling and it's very common in our nature. However, anxiety can be dangerous if it's not treated correctly. There are many options in the world like psychologist or psychiatrists many people look for help. Looking for help is the right thing to do, but we must seek guidance and help in the word of God. In the bible and in our relationship with God we can find the solution to this problem. Let's learn a little about how to replace anxiety with peace.

There are many options in the world like psychologist or psychiatrists many people look for help. Looking for help is the right thing to do, but we must seek guidance and help in the word of God. In the bible and in our relationship with God we can find the solution to this problem. Let’s learn a little about how to replace anxiety with peace.

The word of God says in Philipians 4:6

Do not be anxious or worried about ANYTHING,

Anxiety is the equivalent of not trusting God. And in this verse we are called to not be worried about any thing. Nothing should be worrying us. Now, all the circumstances around us can lead us to that state if we don’t take care of it. When Paul says “anything” he means nothing without restrictions, no possibilities, no spaces, NOTHING!

Then, how we can replace or exchange the anxiety that invades us sometimes with a state of peace? The bible says that it is possible and give us a way. Philippians 4:6 says again:

Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 AMP

How we do it?

We come to presence of God with prayer (that is our way of communicating with God, vital part of our relationship with Him). We express our petitions accompanied of thanksgiving (that is our way of asking God for His will to be done in us). Then, we make our requests known to God in a specific way.

All of this is part of an active life of prayer, we speak… We express… We make requests… We give thanks. This provides to us an outlet for anxiety. We liberated ourselves, we left the heavy burden that from the beginning we should not have carried. And instead of this, we receive peace that surpasses everything. Even if you are in the middle of the storm.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

May this be a way for all us who are in Christ to replace anxiety with the marvelous peace that ONLY God gives us.
