When 'Thank You' Just Isn't Enough
And while there are a handful of ways to verbally say "Thank You," they just never feel like enough.
For the past few days, the Lord has heaped - bountifully and abundantly - blessings on me. One right after another after another until I'm positively giddy inside.
And yet, just saying "Thank You" doesn't seem like enough. There's got to be something more, something else, another way or another word.
I think David ran into the same problem while he was writing the Psalms. Over and over, he thanks the Lord for what He's done, what He's doing and what He's going to do. We read passage after passage with the word "Thanks."
I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people. Psalm 35:18
As powerful as words can be, sometimes it's the repetition that means the most.
Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. Psalm 75:1
Are you just as thankful today for the blessings of yesterday? Are you just as thankful for the blessings God has promised will come tomorrow as you are for the ones you hold in your hand right now?
Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. Psalm 30:4
Whether it feels like enough or not, it's all the Lord wants to hear from us. We want to hear words of appreciation when we do something - imagine how much more so it would be for God.
So say it - again and again and again. Give thanks to Lord so often that the words seem inadequate.
And then say it a few more times. God is worthy.
