I Thank my God every time I remember you! (Phi 1:3)
I am thankful that God created you! I am delighted that God placed you exactly where you are, in the family he chose for you. God has blessed you with your unique personality, skills and gifts knowing that these are exactly what are needed today in this place where you find yourself.
I am thankful that you got up this morning and went to work. I am thankful that you do your work with excellence. The work you, your department and your company does makes a difference in somebody’s life and in the city where you work. I am thankful that you approach your work with joy. Your joy is contagious, lighting up your workplace.
I appreciate you for smiling at somebody today. I am grateful that you encouraged someone today. Your words or your smile may have been the only smile or encouraging word that somebody heard today. Thank you for your tenderness, compassion, and genuine concern for the welfare of your co-workers.
Thank you for bringing God’s presence and God’s light into your workplace. You are a beacon of hope. Your co-workers notice a difference because you demonstrate God’s grace in your conversations, meetings, and customer interactions.
He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil 1:6)
Your behavior and conversations at work are a testimony to God’s redeeming and transforming power. I know that there are many temptations at work, but I am thankful to God that he is able to deliver us from all these temptations through Jesus Christ our Lord. That you are seldom heard grumbling or complaining at work demonstrates your firm conviction in God’s sovereignty. Your quiet confidence and lack of anxiety is a shining beacon of God’s peace reigning in your heart.
May your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ. May you be filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God! (Phil 1:9-11)
