This word captured my attention today. I love the definition because when I read it, I think of Paul. (the bible paul). It describes his attitude of thanks to God so well. How often in his New Testament letters does he break forth into praise? It's as if he is overcome by God's goodness "Thanks be to God!" Paul is profuse when it comes to thanking God.
So today, I looked into the mirror of God's words. As Whitney would say: "Look, here is where you should be. down there is where you are. only don't despair! this is how I will change you to be more like Me.' " I want to be like Paul. I want to express my thankfulness and praise to God like him. At all times, in all situations. To randomly stop what I'm doing and rejoice in the fact that I am REdEEmED! I am not there yet. Not even close. But by the grace of God...maybe my kids will hear their mum glorifying the Lord at all times. In times of joy, times of sorrow, and the mundane everyday. He is so very worthy of praise.
"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Cor. 15.
