I was watching a reality show last week and this exchange occurred between two people:
I thought about that comment and the more I thought about it the more I realized they were right, at least for me. Recently, I have most definitely changed the way I talk to God, especially since listening to Joel Osteen and Oprah, both talk about thanking God rather than always asking for help. For instance you should say, thank you God for bestowing Your favors upon me, or if there is something you want rather than say, God please help me find a new job, you should say thank you God for bringing the perfect job to me. Thank you God for bringing me abundance, thank you God for my good health (say especially if you are ill) and so on.
So even though you are thanking God, you are still asking Him for things in a round about way. When was the last time you just had a conversation with God? Hi God, how’s Your day going? What’s new? What have You been up to? What’s Your favorite color, what sign are You? What’s Your favorite tree or flower?
Perhaps you do have these types of conversations with God, if so I think that’s pretty amazing and what is His favorite tree? 😉
Of course, I will always thank Him for the many blessings He bestows upon me!
However, I’ve also decided that I’m going to sit quietly and let Him tell me about His day!
I’ll keep you posted.
