Give Thanks


Daniel 3:52

Blessed is your holy and glorious name, praiseworthy and exalted above all for all ages.

Do you ever get worn-down by the endless senseless acts in the news and the pettiness you encounter in day to day interactions? It seems that many are “unconscious” of a bigger picture…what Jesus called, “the kingdom of God.” Stop and ponder that there is an Infinite Compassion that is holding and sustaining each of us. This Eternal Love has been, is, and will be. When we speak the name “God”…we are boxing up into a three-letter word that which is infinite. How do we define the undefinable? How do we address Who is so profound and distant and yet so intimately Present and palpable? When Moses asked for a name…God replied, “I am who am.” God is Being itself! God Is. And “God is love” (1 John 4:8). As we see in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus…God’s love wins. Jesus called God “Abba”…sometimes translated as “Daddy”…a mixture of fatherly strength and motherly tenderness. This is Who regards each of us as treasured sons and daughters. Stop for a moment…to give praise and thanks!

    Hey, Bill. Just wanted to tell you that I’ve starting passing on your meditations to my sister and she was overflowing in her praise. I am confident that these meditations are going to help her grow through this very difficult time in her life. Made me even more aware of how good your “stuff” is. Peace.
