It seems that thanks should run supreme in our conversations with God. There is always a need for sorry but never enough thanks and praise. Seven times a day* we are challenged but do we praise even once? We are a disobedient and contrary people* told in Scripture not to worry about our life, our body*. Americans overfed, having long life, abundant clothing, are undernourished in the things that matter, eternal things that would give us never-ending joy. So thank You, thank You, Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One. You give us life and that more abundantly*. You offer us Your very kingdom. Help me be loyal to praise practice, seeking first Your kingdom and righteousness. Doing that, I receive all that is needed. If I seek You, I will find you* and be more satisfied than having all the kingdoms of this world and their splendor*. Psalm 119:164, Romans 10:21, Matthew 6:25-33, John 10:10, Jeremiah 29:14, Matthew 4:8
Well that about sums it up, don’t you think?
