THANKFULNESS OPENS THE DOOR  to My Presence.   Though I am always with you, I have gone to great measures to preserve your freedom of choice.  I have placed a door between you and Me, and I have empowered you to open or close that door.  These are many ways to open it, but a grateful attitude is one of the most effective.  There are many ways to open it, but a grateful attitude is one of the most effective.

Thankfulness is built on a substructure of trust.  When thankful words stick in your throat, you need to check up on your foundation of trust.  When thankfulness flows freely from your heart and lips, let your gratitude draw you closer to Me.  I want you to learn the art of giving thanks in all circumstances. See how many times you can thank Me daily; this will awaken your awareness to a multitude of blessings.  It will also cushion the impact of trials when they come against you.  Practice My Presence by practicing the discipline of thankfulness.

   Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His court with praise: give thanks to Him and praise His name.  Psalm 100:4

   Give thanks in all circumstances , for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.    1 Thessalonians5:18
