Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Psalm 100:4
Are you feeling poorly today? Try a dose of gratitude. It’s a nontoxic medication developed in the heavenly pharmaceutical factories and dispensed freely to everyone on earth. It counters the plague of pain, the scourge of the sour spirit, and the disease of despondency. You can self-prescribe it at any time, and it’s impossible to overdose on it. Gratitude comes in several forms:
- A shot in the arm: Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. Psalm 100:4
- A booster shot: In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
- Tablet form: And be thankful. Colossians 3:15
- And infusion: Giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:20
A merry soul is good medicine, so let the Great Physician treat the symptoms of your soul with His prized formula of gratitude and thanksgiving today!
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed, when you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, count your many blessings, name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. Johnson Oatman
