November 23 ...
"As you sit quietly in My Presence, let Me fill your heart and mind with thankfulness. This is the most direct way to achieve a thankful stance. If your mind needs a focal point, gaze t My Love poured out for you on the cross. Remember that nothing in heaven or on earth can separate you from that Love. This remembrance builds a foundation of gratitude in you, a foundation that circumstances cannot shake.
As you go through this day, look for tiny treasures strategically placed along the way. I lovingly go before you and plant little pleasures to brighten your day. Look carefully for them, and pluck them one by one. When you reach the end of the day, you will have gathered a lovely bouquet. Offer it up to Me with a grateful heart. Receive My Peace as you lie down to sleep, with thankful thoughts playing a lullaby in your mind."
Father God, as I read this today- I realized it was EXACTLY what I needed. Just to be reminded of how much you love me, and that nothing can separate me from your Love! Thank you!!!!!
And to be encouraged to look for tiny treasures in this day. Open my eyes that I can and will see them. I don't want to miss one! I don't want to be so busy being Martha that I forget and miss being Mary ... with YOU.
I love you!!!!!
THANK YOU GOD!!!!!
