I have hope today because – according to this verse from Colossians 3, anyway – it is apparently possible that whatever I say and do can be accomplished in a God-honoring way.
Of course, left to my own devices, this would never be the case. In my own finite, human strength, at most I could do some things in the name of the Lord Jesus, and be thankful sometimes. However, through the power of the Holy Spirit, it is possible for me to commit my words, my thoughts, and my actions to the Lord, and find something – no matter how small! – for which I can be thankful to Him each day.
So, whatever I do – be it the laundry, running an errand or two, or volunteering at church – I can commit all of my activities to the Lord in advance, giving Him thanks simply for who He is.
