A Thankful Heart:
The Lifestyle of a People That Can See the Invisible God
By: Alan Smith
n Psalm 100: Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; W e are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. G. K. Chesterton
Intentional awareness of our countless blessings will always provide fuel for a wildfire of gratitude in our soul! A fitting starting point in our quest for gratitude is to take special note of the Jesus experiences of each day. They…Continue

If you obey certain rules, act in certain ways, perform various disciplines you are religious. The Pharisees were very religious.
There’s nothing wrong with obeying rules, acting…Continue

A friend shared this mind blowing, yet simple truth about God’s love. He posed the following question: do you know that God loves you as much as He loves Himself? Do you love yourself as much as God does? That simple question challenges the core of our belief system. The very essence of God’s love calls us to love the very ones that He sent His Son to die…Continue

Love is the point! If I don’t start from the motivation of love then my actions--whatever they may be, are inconsequential. And I will not end up with an outcome governed and adorned by love! What’s the point otherwise? My intent, my heart motive, my thoughts and my actions must be subjected only to love if love is to be! I am made for loves sonnet to be sung through the notes of my life’s song. Are you?
1 Corinthians 13:1 Speaking in tongues is not the point; love is. It is neither…Continue
