I love collecting quotes and sharing them too.
Quotes are simple and yet very effective in delivering messages.
They are also inspiring and motivating and have special ways of lifting up our spirits when we are feeling low.
Giving thanks never goes out of season and we can certainly learn to be grateful everyday as it helps to improve our health and leads to better quality of life.
In addition to quotes, I also find Music to be very up lifting and inspiring.
Well, here is this totally motivating Psalm my friend creatively produced as a Youtube Video.
Psalm 95 is full of various phrases where the Psalmist is offering thanksgiving and praises to God.
So, if you are having a hard time finding what to say in gratitude, why don't you use the words of the author of Psalms 95?
I pray you enjoy the Video and it refreshes your soul as much as it did for me.
“One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful..we let what was once a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to his goodness it becomes a routine.”
“If I do not feel a sense of joy in God's creation, if I forget to offer the world back to God with thankfulness, I have advanced very little upon the Way. I have not yet learnt to be truly human. For it is only through thanksgiving that I can become myself.”
“Be thankful. God has commanded it for our good and for His glory. God’s command to be thankful is not the threatening demand of a tyrant. Rather, it is the invitation of a lifetime—the opportunity to draw near to Him at any moment of the day.”
"A thankful heart is one of the primary identifying characteristics of a believer. It stands in stark contrast to pride, selfishness, and worry. And it helps fortify the believer's trust in the Lord and reliance of His provision, even in the toughest times. No matter how choppy the seas become, a believer's heart is buoyed by constant praise and gratefulness to the Lord."
"I'm just thankful for everything, all the blessings in my life, trying to stay that way. I think that's the best way to start your day and finish your day. It keeps everything in perspective."
