Can we ever say

“thank you” enough?

It is usually one of the first phrases taught to toddlers, often married to the actions of outstretched arms or pointing at something we want. It is patterned into us by multiple reminders and the joy of actually receiving. Unfortunately, it becomes a thoughtless habit and sometimes even a sarcastic comment as we age.

Last week during morning coffee with Jesus, I read a reflection on Psalm 21:1-7. In it, Eugene Peterson writes, “We don’t thank enough because we don’t think enough.“ (Praying the Psalms by Eugene H. Peterson)

When we ponder the countless miracles that brought us into being, sustained us as we grew, and held us up in the deepest and darkest moments, who do we have to thank for all of this?

The ONE is the Author of Life, the Universe, and Everything. The ONE who is Creator, Savior and Inspirer. The ONE is our Rock, Fortress, and Redeemer. The ONE who is the Triune God of Grace. The ONE who is the Answer.

Let’s renew our practice of the holy habit of thinking more and thanking more.
