I used those initials in a text to a family member and she sent me a text back asking what "PTL" meant.
Of course, the letters stand for.....
PRAISE THE LORD!!!
How often do you say those words?
"Thank You, Lord"!
I think for many of us,
it just becomes second nature to whisper those words when things go our way.
I was looking at my phone while driving.
I wasn't sending a text,
but I did realize that I had looked at it a bit too long.
So, I thanked God for keeping me safe while I was doing something that was totally unsafe.
Later in the day,
I was placing a glass jar into the fridge and almost dropped it....
which would have made a huge mess.
I thanked God for the "save" when I caught it before it hit the hard floor!!
But, how often do I thank God.....
or praise His Name.....
when things don't go how I would like?
That thought was an eye opener for me.
Often it's those times that God has a better plan....
or He has a lesson He wants to teach me.
Breathing in Jesus,
