Always say Thank You…

Okay, so my name was called 32 times tonight by my kids. Out of those 32 times not one” thank you” was said for anything. Now I’m not saying this to insinuate that my children have poor manners. That’s not the case, they are all very well mannered.

When I first began writing it down to remember the number of times, I did it as a something funny. Later on that evening, the Lord laid the thought on my heart, “You call on me for times of praise and times of need, during those times how often do the words “thank you” come from you to me?”

It really made me step back and realize just how thankful my day to day walk with Christ is and how thankful I am for everything in my life that He has provided.

Something that was entertaining to me at first turned into a personal lesson. So remember, Thank You, when meant and stated sincerely means as much to Him as it does to us.

  1. Amen! This is a very good point. I don’t think we take nearly enough time to be thankful for what God does. We are always quick to go to Him with our needs and wants but what about praise and thanksgiving? Thanks for pointing this out. I hope it makes others think as it has me.

  2. God is good all the time and all the time God is Good!!! I try to be very intentional in thanking him for even the smallest of things. The more we focus on those small things the less the big bad things are going to affect us, as we filled our cup with so much goodness daily!!
