Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1 NIV
God provides blessings each and every day. He grows us! He demonstrates how we are held by Him and allows us to witness the power of His love. He nurtures our hearts. And when we’re ready to recognize ALL He has given; He cultivates a heart of thankfulness. He shows how it feels to be grateful.
Often, we forget God is honored by our praise. He created us to experience abundant joy and trust in Him. He helps us welcome His peace and skillfully chooses what He provides. He reminds us where to find strength and He blesses us! He helps us discover how gratitude nurtures the heart. And He leads us on the path of wholeness.
On any given day, life will take unexpected turns and create bumps in the road. But God has the strength to move us through obstacles that stand in the way. He knows how to guide and comfort us as we journey with Jesus. And while we are cradled in care, He humbles our hearts to feel thankful.
We must give God the PRAISE He deserves! A grateful heart WILL welcome needed strength. It will diminish weakness and prepare us for what's to come. God is worthy of our love and deserving of thanks! An attitude of gratitude will erase negative thoughts and help us embrace each day. Give thanks to the Lord for He is good! His mercies are new each and every morning! We can trust in His promises. He is God and He loves us! ♥
Dear God, thank you for the gift of this day! Help us remember to begin our prayers in PRAISE. When You open our eyes, remind us who is handling ALL things. We will gratefully welcome what You provide and thank you for the breath of life! Forgive us when we grumble and complain. Help us find reason to be grateful in all circumstances. We are humbled by Your love and the promise of Your presence in our lives. Thank you, Lord! Thank you for loving us. We will put our trust in You and choose to remember; there is ALWAYS a reason to be grateful. Amen
