Thankful for the Little Things

“always giving thanks to God the Father for everything….” Ephesians 5:20

Loud shouts of “Hallelujah” go up for huge answers to prayer, and the Father hears them with a smile. I wonder, though, if His mighty hand cups His holy ear as He leans a little closer to hear words of thanks for the little things. He sends daily blessings that, if we are not careful, we may take for granted. Lamentations 3: 23 says that God’s mercies are new every morning. This means that God is intentional about renewing every regular blessing He gives you. Every blessing you got that you had yesterday deserves a fresh offering of thanks. How many of us know that at any time, that everyday blessing can cease? Ask the widow, the grieving mother, the woman who lost her job, or the soul who got an unexpected diagnosis.

Our hearts need to be a factory that cranks out fresh thanksgiving daily to our faithful God Who daily cranks out blessing after generous blessing.

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
