Do you need an attitude adjustment?

Are you feeling defeated or overwhelmed by your financial circumstances? Then maybe you need to look up and give thanks.

Paul told the Thessalonians to “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, do you need an attitude adjustment? give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Paul says to give thanks in ALL circumstances. Not just the good. Why? Gratitude changes our perspective. It gets our eyes off ourselves and onto the great I AM, the One who is, who was and is to come. He promises to work all things together for good and disciplines us out of love for us.

Joel Sczebel wrote a beautiful song entitled “Grace and Peace"... These are the lyrics:

Grace and peace, oh how can this be

For lawbreakers and thieves

For the worthless, the least

You have said, that our judgment is death

For all eternity

Without hope, without rest

Oh, what an amazing mystery

What an amazing mystery

That Your grace has come to me

Grace and peace, oh how can this be

The matchless King of all

Paid the blood price for me

Slaughtered lamb, what atonement You bring!

The vilest sinner’s heart

Can be cleansed, can be free

Oh, what an amazing mystery

What an amazing mystery

That Your grace has come to me

Grace and peace, oh how can this be

Let songs of gratefulness

Ever rise, never cease

Loved by God and called as a saint

My heart is satisfied

In the riches of Christ

Oh, what an amazing mystery

What an amazing mystery

That Your grace has come to me

AMEN!
