This morning, Caleb came to me with concerns that filled his twelve-year-old world with weighted worries. He tearfully shared fears and anxieties.
In the midst of our conversation, a brief silence rested between words. The faint chorus of melodious chimes floated into our living room from outside the window during that intermission. As we tuned our attention to the sound, the wind chimes grew louder.
They’d been ringing softly all morning, beckoning our ears to delight in their harmony.
Yet, we’d not heard them.
Until we drew our ears toward the beautiful melody, we’d missed out on a harmonious blessing. From this simple, yet glorious sound, we were changed. The worries withered. Peace tenderly danced into our lives as we changed the posture of our hearts.
Eucharisteo is charis and grace. We embraced eucharisteo with intentional gratefulness and responses of thanksgiving. The blessings surround us.
Instruments of praise are awaiting our invitation in this concert of life.
Whoever sacrifices a thank offering honors Me, and whoever orders his conduct, I will show him the salvation of God. (Psalm 50:23)
On Mondays, those who are seeking to walk in gratitude, share multitudes of blessings. We’ve accepted a challenge. A dare to live fully right where we are. I dare you to do the same (and feel free to share your multitudes of gratitude here with us).
