Thankful Thursday: Praise and Gratitude
Istijlál (Majesty), 11 Jalál (Glory) 175 B.E. - Thursday, April 19, 2018

“Know thou of a certainty that every house wherein the anthem of praise is raised to the Realm of Glory in celebration of the Name of God is indeed a heavenly home, and one of the gardens of delight in the Paradise of God.”
Bahá’í Writings

Praise

Sing "Hallelujah!"
Joyfully intone
praise the the Almighty.

Gratitude1

In everything give thanks!
Never doubting that God exist.

Each day He blesses every unselfish deed.
Victory and defeat instructs the conscious soul.
Each test encountered strengthens the seeker's faith.
Reach beyond the limits of materiality.
Your salvation is to overcome your duality.
Together body and spirit compose a single entity.
Humanity was created to live eternally.
In everything give thanks!
Never doubting that God exist.
God does not leave His lovers unconsoled.

God does not leave His lover unconsoled.
In everything give thanks!
Victory and defeat instructs the conscious soul.
Eternity was created for humanity.

Thought and deed must go hand-in-hand.
Heaven and hell is constructed individually.
At death the soul vibrates at a higher level;
Never doubting that Tod exist.
Knowledge of God comes through His Manifestation.
Salvation is accepting God's Manifestation.
