A tiny revelation today.
Of all the years that I have been alive and being a disciple of Christ, a simple answer came to me this morning while I was meditating about life.
Nothing is more powerful than the power of Gratitude.
Paul always start of his letters with:
"I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers..."
"...rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness..."
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."
"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe..."
And in the letter of Philemon:
"I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ."
"that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever."
To God be the Glory.
