A little push and a prick at my heart

     Part of my devotions today were in Colossians chapter 2. The verses 6-7 really challenged me! The last phrase of verses 7 says "abounding therein with thanksgiving". Then I thought, "Am I ABOUNDING with thanksgiving?" "Do I have a thankful attitude?"
     I sometimes struggle with being negative or thankful in all situations of life. These verses were exactly what I needed to be reminded that it's not all about me, I need to be thankful in everything, and that is a daily thing. Being thankful shouldn't just happen when everything is going great in our lives! It should be every day, through difficult times too. God knows just what we need doesn't He? Even if what we need is a little push and a prick at our hearts. 


  1. Christin, I needed these words. I've had a difficult past few weeks with job situation, and my attittude has not been lined up with thanksgiving. While I've known that, I've still chosen to be full of self-pity, anger, bitterness, etc. Thanks for the prick and prod.
