“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”
It may sound strange, but I have found that there is a strong connection between being thankful and having more peace in my life. I’ve discovered that lifting up praises to God on a regular basis calms my spirit in two very special ways:
1. It reminds me that God has done so many amazing things for me already. I can see His love for me and concern for every part of my life.
2. It reminds me that God has been faithful to keep His promises to me. I am reassured by His presence and the knowledge that He is always near.
