One night, at a prayer-and-praise meeting a good brother related a long, complaining strain of experiences about the trials and difficulties which are encountered on the way to Heaven. At the end of his talk, another brother arose and said, "I see that our brother who has just sat down, lives in Grumbling Street. I lived there myself for some time, but I never enjoyed good health. The air there is bad; the houses are bad, the water is bad; the birds never came and sang in the street, and I was gloomy and sad enough. But finally I moved. I moved to Thanksgiving Street, and ever since then I have had good health and so have my family. The air is pure, the water good, the houses are good; the sun shines in all day; the birds are always singing; and I am happy as I can be. Now, I would suggest to our brother, that he, too, move. There are plenty of houses `to let' in Thanksgiving Street."
Which street are you living on: Grumbling Street, or Thanksgiving Street? Don't forget, there is plenty of room on Thanksgiving Street, and your health would be better, and your heart happier if you would move there.
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
-1 Chronicles 29:13 (New International Version)
Dear Lord We praise you for all you have done for us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
