Gratitude

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

Colossians 3:16 NIV

I have been struggling with what to write about “gratitude.” Nothing seems quite enough to express the deep thankfulness I ought to feel on a daily basis. So, when this verse popped up in my word search, I decided to look back at a previous blog post, “What Keeps Me Singing.”

…this is what keeps me singing. The more resources I collect, the more I discover God’s resourcefulness. He never ceases to connect the thoughts of men and women across generations. As a writer, that ignites my own inspiration to share my insight because only God knows who might read it someday. As a reader, I thrill at the idea that my story is a continuation of someone before me and mine could become part of another in the future. All because One Source tells the greatest story if only the whole world would stop to listen.
Songs like this one also encouraged me to keep singing. May it inspire all of us to continue singing through 2016.

May it inspire us to keep us singing with gratitude through 2017 as well.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:17
