How Much Thanks Is Too Much
There is never a time or a place that we should not be gracious and humbled by God. He shows us over and over again his power. His mercy and rewards everlasting, to all who believe and continue to have faith. The bible says in many places, MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE. If people would stop asking Lord why me? Replace that question with Lord why not me? The lessons and answers of our lives, which in turn affects others lives will be given freely. I awake this morning so humbled. So gracious. So filled with humility. I envision David in the bible presenting himself before God as he came into this world,with no shame of his nakedness praising and thanking God. If memory serves me right, it was not until Eve convinced Adam to take a bite of the apple in the garden of Eden that our nakedness seemed shameful. David had so much to be thankful for. He praised God with so much glory. He shouted,danced and wrote about his joyful noise, his humbleness, his human-ness. All of which can be read in book of Psalms all chapters. Psalm 100:1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness. Come before his presence with singing.
