Here’s one daily habit that will change your life!
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Psalm 107:1
Have you heard of the word Eucharisteo? I learned about it recently and it it’s a Greek word which means giving thinks, or thanksgiving. It is one daily habit that will change your life!
I suppose it’s appropriate to talk about giving thanks since next week is Thanksgiving. But I believe the power of giving thanks goes way beyond the normal “I’m thankful” statements we always say around the turkey dinner table.
In her book, One Thousand Gifts, author Ann Voskamp says that “Eucharisteo–thanksgiving–always precedes the miracle.”
I could use a few more miracles in my life, how about you?
If you form the daily habit of thankfulness, your life will be changed. The miracle comes in how you see life, how people see you, how your perspective and attitude will change, and good things always happen when we and those around us are not held back by our negativity. And I believe that God opens doors when we are thankful because that’s just how He does things.
So, will you purpose with me, as you sit around and enjoy your blessings tomorrow, to practice a bit more eucharisteo in the coming year?
Life change comes when we receive life with thanks and ask for nothing to change.
