how is rejoice different than giving thanks?
rejoice: To feel joyful; be delighted
To fill with joy; gladden
so then, Rejoice is a feeling, a state of being.
giving thanks is an action. something we do.
What things can we “be delighted” with today? what things fill us with Joy?
for me, it’s:
Hampton feeling better (not having to go to the doctor)
happy children in the morning, getting ready for school
a fire in the fireplace
celebrating friends birthdays
reading/learning/understanding things about myself
getting paper work finished and sent in
shopping with my boy
new christmas music
US radio station in the car
good news from the lawyer
Thank you Lord for all these things that you have given me to be delighted in. I know they are all from you, because You created all things and you hold all things together.
you are an awesome God. you are mighty. you are lovely. you are my healer. you care for me. you love me. I am known by you.
