THIS is why you shouldn't HIDE your blessings

Updated: Jul 15, 2019

My husband and I attend a dinner party every Wednesday night hosted by friends at our church, "C3 NYC." It’s a tradition started by Pastors Josh and Georgie Kelsey, where members of the congregation meet up once a week to catch up on life, trade insights about that week’s sermon and share prayer requests along with "praise reports."

Praise reports are exactly what they sound like — reports of praise-worthy life events. I rarely share praise reports, but I almost always have prayer requests. It’s not that I’m unaware of God’s innumerable blessings in my life; in fact, I try to take time every day to thank God for them while I pray. But I’ve been hesitant to talk about these blessings with other people because I don’t want to appear as though I’m somehow bragging about these gifts, especially knowing I don’t deserve them.

I saw your article about you and your husband attending a weekly dinner. Your story about why we should share praise and thanksgiving is another support from our loving God that I should continue my journey of praising Him. Because of a life changing incident almost three years ago I have been given a platform that is made just for me to share the many blessings God has showered me with. Why me? Why not? Because I’m not special...and so the internal conversation goes. As I end my praises I say if we aren’t God’s cheerleaders then who!
