Colossians 2

It makes life seem better, gives you enthusiasm, it helps us overcome, puts us in a positive frame of mind, and makes pain, suffering and trials reduce in their intensity. It is also the first step to physical, emotional and spiritual healing. What is it? Who can I see to get it? What does it cost?

I got mine from the Word of God and it cost me nothing. Coming from a place of overwork, tiredness, depression and pain, I can tell you that it really works. It has been one of the changes I have made that has turned my life around.

Thankfulness. It all seems too simple really. But finding things to be thankful about in any and every situation makes a massive difference to life. Paul said this to the believers in Colossae: “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him … abounding in thankfulness.” (Colossians 2 v 6 – 7 ESV).

Let’s not just aim to be thankful, but to abound in thankfulness. Let’s let thankfulness overflow from us. May we reap God’s blessings when we abound in thankfulness.

May joy and thankfulness be the mark of our characters this week.

With love in our Lord,
