Proclaim It

by DanWolgemuth on November 21, 2014

I wash my hands in innocence and go around your altar, O LORD, proclaiming thanksgiving aloud, and telling all your wondrous deeds. (Psalm 26:6-7)

Proclaim it. Verbalize it. Out loud.

Unleash your heart to reflect.

Remove the constraints of business to explore boldly and humbly the landscape of His wondrous deeds.

Resist the urge to compare.

Remember that arrogance and gratitude cannot coexist. Never.

Thinking much of me suffocates thanksgiving.

Grief and pain are often the ushers to the front row seats of thanksgiving.

Happiness is not a prerequisite for gratitude.

Thanksgiving is birthed in the deepest part of my soul… but it isn’t a recluse there.

Gratitude expressed becomes fertilizer in the heart and soul of others.

Authentic thanksgiving produces generosity.

A heart of gratitude shines the light on a sovereign God.

A culture of self-sufficiency limits our capacity to live gratefully.

Humility always produces thanksgiving. Always.

Pride forces gratitude out of the picture.

It’s often tears that water the soil of hope and thanksgiving.

Laugh out loud.

Dance without rhythm. Just dance.

Don’t be afraid to sing. Even out of tune.

Proclaim it. Speak out loud about the goodness and grace of our King.

Make much of Jesus.

Hug somebody… particularly if they don’t expect it.

Extend grace, and do it liberally.

Guard your heart and not your rights.

When you struggle with yourself or your circumstances or your position or your pain, ask God for help. Say out loud, “I need you.”

A heart of gratitude exposes the God of power.

Look into the eyes of a family member and tell them that you esteem them.

Proclaim thanksgiving.

Get in the habit.

A heart of thanksgiving lives in the neighborhood of God.

Authentic praise begets contagious joy.

Selflessness invites transparency.


Proclaim it.

All HIS wondrous deeds.
