Lord, teach me to offer you a heart of thanksgiving and praise in all my daily experiences of life. I long to bring pleasure to Your heart daily. Break the power of the enemy in my life. Defeat him through my sacrifice of praise. Change my outlook and attitude into one of joyful contentment with my present circumstances. I thank You for… [Name a difficult circumstance in your life presently and thank God for it.]
Jesus, I want to be like You who obeyed the Father without complaint. You embraced the chains of humanity when You walked this earth. Convict me whenever I complain or compare myself with others. I know that Your truth dwells in a thankful heart.null
‘I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens’ (Psalm 7:17-18:1). In Jesus’ Name, Amen.” (Debbie Przybylski.)
I’ve been a Scott fan for a very long time….so inspired and grateful by and of his sharing of his story and testimony 🙏
James 1:2-4 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
“There’s failures, and then there’s successes, and then there’s knock-downs, and then it’s getting up, and it’s been kind of the story of my life.”
When we first sat down with retired figure skating champion and Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton seven years ago, we were profoundly affected by his calm strength and peaceful spirit as he described facing down fear, pain and uncertainty—moving through them to finding a new beginning again and again. In this follow up to his original conversation with us, we found ourselves inspired anew by the way his courage and commitment has only grown deeper.
“I’ve never been more content, and I’ve never been more in love, and I’ve never been more at peace than I am in my faith.”
In the time since his first I Am Second film, Scott and his wife Tracie adopted a son and daughter into their family. He’s continued to lean into the challenge of finding growth and grace in difficulty, championing connection where there is division, and reaching for hope in the face of the impossible.” (via I Am Second..Scott Hamilton
