Thoughts and insights from Jubilee Church Wirral

Gratitude

By Nicki Frodsham, Jubilee Church Wirral

I read a short poem recently from someone giving thanks for financial support they had received from a charity:.

Thanks for doing what you did;
You are kind beyond belief;
Your help and caring calmed me down,
And gave me soothing relief.

(Source- ACTS 435)

I found her words very moving and at the end of her poem she went on to say: “Your help means so much to me and my daughter and I can promise when we are back on our feet we will repay it forward. Thank you again for being a light in this dark world.

It made me think about how God has blessed us in so many ways.  When our children were young we were given the opportunity to go on holiday which was such a blessing.  A lovely lady from outside the church said that God had told her to give us some money, but that we must use it for a holiday.  We had very little money at the time and we were able to book a static caravan and had a wonderful time. We have had many other blessings too and over the years, we have also been able to bless others in need.

It is lovely to receive a gift but if I forget to go back to someone to say thank you, it does not mean that I’m not thankful but the person who gave me the gift doesn’t know that. I sometimes forget to go back to God to thank him for answered prayer or the blessings I have received.

Even though we are still facing some challenging times, let us keep going to God with thanksgiving.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:18 it says: “…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Remember to give thanks to God daily. Tell him about the little things you are thankful for.

God bless,
Nicki
