Bless Us Oh Lord
The complete talk from guest lecturer Amy Myers at the ITV class September 28. Amy shared her witness of Gratitude as part of class. Check it out it is excellent.
“Bless us oh Lord and these thy gifts which we are about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen” Wow! What an awesome prayer.
I know you Catholics are used to saying this prayer at meal time, but have you ever said it in the morning? When you take a shower in the morning or put on your make-up or get dressed. Try it!
“Bless us oh Lord, and these thy gifts.” The day has just begun. It has been given to us from God…how awesome. He already has it planned out. “Which we are about to receive”. God is ready to share it with us. The good, the bad and the ugly are gifts that we are going to receive. How can we get excited about the bad and the ugly…well, it’s hard? It’s a heart matter of trust and faith and believing that no matter what happens today, tomorrow or next week, these are the gifts given “from thy bounty through Christ our Lord.” He wants me to share my triumphs and struggles with him. I think that’s the key. He wants us to take our day and share it with Him. So here’s my story. Here is how thankfulness has brought a new perspective to my life and transformed my relationship with God.
