A Grateful Heart and Humility

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you,
with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16

Humility comes with a grateful heart.  When we give thanks to God for all He is and all He has done, our hearts bow before His awesome Presence and we are humbled.  Humility comes when we do not claim the victories in our own power, but acknowledge that only with God are all things possible.  I am humbled as I go to speak this day.  It was only God that saved me, then taught me, then provided a godly husband and 5 wonderful boys and the opportunity to homeschool and gave me grace in the midst, healing my heart and bringing me to a place of joy.  I do not go to talk about my accomplishments, but rather what God has done in me and the wonderful changes that He has wrought in my heart and life.  It is only God that gave me talents and the ability to think and organize.  It is only God that has opened up this opportunity to speak.  Thank you Lord Jesus.  Please be Lord over my heart, my attitude, my words, and my actions throughout this weekend.  May you be glorified!

Praise God for every breath and every step.  In Him we were made and have our being.  He delights in you and wants to hear back from you with songs of praise and thanksgiving.  This does not make God proud, but rather makes man humble.  A daily dose of praise keeps our minds stayed on Christ and off our own problems and concerns and greatness.  Praise throughout the day reminds our hearts to walk with others in a right attitude.  Praise before we sleep puts us in a sweet frame of mind for resting.  Rest in Him, trust in Him, and be grateful for all that He has done.  A humble heart leads you into a place of rest and joy.
