November Freebie: Rejoice | Pray | Give Thanks

Happy November!!

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks..." These are the beautiful words from I Thessalonians 5:16-18 that I recently got to design for a chalk wall in a local church's youth room. I loved how the artwork came together and thought that with a little tweaking they would make the perfect lock screen for us this month.

This little chunk of Scripture is an instructional one. In fact, it's kinda like a little cheat sheet for abundant life! We've been let in on the secret, ladies!

I love how The Passion Translation says it: "Let joy be your continual feast. Make your life a prayer. And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus."

I want my re-JOY-cing - His joy in me - to be my actual strength; my meal, my nourishment.

I want to be a walking prayer meeting, expecting God to break though everything that hinders me and His other kids.

I want to focus on being grateful for the abundance all around me, not what I lack.

Anybody with me on that this month? I'd love to hear which one of those three things really popped out at you. Which part tugged at your heart the most when you read the words? Tell me in the comments below! And then download your free lock screen as a daily reminder to keep your heart and mind focused on that very thing. 

I sure love ya, sisters. In your corner.
