Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect. I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, his Word.

Now let’s dress our soul like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY!


Psalms 118:28-29 NIV

You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

The Oxford Languages Dictionary defines gratitude as being thankful: readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. What does God’s word teach us about gratitude? It is the ability to show our words in action. When we are thankful, we are recognizing the very source of where our help comes from. There is no greater sign of appreciation than to remember the Good Lord in all we do.

As I look further into gratitude, there is something wonderful about people uplifting people. A thank you can go a long way when we need help or helping others. It does make a difference.

John F. Kennedy had this to say about gratitude, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

Maya Angelou said these words about gratitude, “Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.”

Here are some benefits of a thankful heart:

Less complaining as we count our blessings and focus on what we do have.

A overall sense of wellbeing for our body and mind.

Our intentions shine through in our actions.

Better relationships are formed as we seek understanding over judgement.

We gain a perspective of humility.

Provides valuable insight in serving other.

My Prayer, “Lord I thank ya! You woke me up this morning and I was closed in my right mind. You gave me a reasonable portion of health and strength as my feet touched the floor. When I opened the blinds, I could hear the birds chirping and see squirrels scampering up the trees. Lord you are mighty. I come to you with thanksgiving in my heart saying, thank you for another day.”

Remember we are each other’s keeper and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
