31 days of surrendering to God Tell others the Good News

Psalm 9:1

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

I am a talker. I love swapping stories and sharing about my life with my friends and family. When I get exciting news the first thing that I want to do is tell someone about it. I share funny things that I come across with my children, and when they say something cute or funny, I call one of their grandmas to tell them the humorous tale. I am quick to share about my new favorite, song, book or movie, but am I quick to praise God and share with my friends and family the wonderful things that He has done for me? Why does it seem easier to complain and talk about the things that I am not happy about, than it is to focus on the many things that I have to be thankful for, and speak words of love, life, truth, and joy. As a mother of three children I know that complaining can be contagious. Well, joy can be contagious too, and I want to spread the joy today. I want to live out loud! So, what about you? What is something wonderful that God is doing in your life today?

    I have so many things to be thankful for. We serve such an amazing God. I think it is important for us to shift our focus away from the negativity to the things we can be thankful for, but some days, we have to admit we live in a broken sinful world. I guess it is all about balance.

      Yes I think this verse applies here too. Romans 12:15 “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.” Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that you have a lovely day!

    You are so right that we are quick to complain but find it difficult to share the blessings God has given us! Thanks for the reminder to spread the joy! Your 31 Days neighbor, Cindy

      Dear Heavenly Father,
      I lift up Susan’s three children to you. Please draw them into a close relationship with you. Guide their choices and decisions that they make, and give Susan comfort, peace, and wisdom. I thank you for the way that you have used Susan to encourage me. In Jesus name, Amen
