This inspirational passage comes from Lifetime Christian Adoption Founder Mardie Caldwell’s personal favorite, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.
Thanking Me awakens your heart and sharpens your mind, helping you enjoy My Presence.
So when you’re feeling out of focus or out of touch with Me, make the effort to thank Me for something. There is always an abundance of things to choose from: eternal gifts—such as salvation, grace, and faith—as well as ordinary, everyday blessings.
Think back over the past twenty-four hours and make note of all the good things I’ve provided in that short block of time. Not only will this lift your spirits, it will wake up your mind so you can think more clearly.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by the works, so that no one can boast.”
