Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act. Psalm 37:7a
There’s a lot to be said about GRATITUDE. Feeling thankful welcomes PEACE to come. It opens our hearts to see God’s provisions and understand the power of His plan. He blesses us in many ways and is honored when we take time to notice.
God longs for us to witness the timing of His love. He demonstrates His goodness in our lives. He cuts through layers of doubt and allows us to see what is hidden. He helps us examine our hearts so we will see what’s missing and recognize ALL He provides.
God helps us develop an attitude of gratitude. As we begin our prayers in praise, He helps us welcome a special “surprise.” He places JOY In our hearts and gives us the desire to look for His many blessings.
“Joy is the assurance that God is in control of all the details of our lives, the quiet confidence that ultimately everything is going to be alright, and the determined choice to praise God in every situation.” ~Rick Warren
There will always be a reason to THANK God! He knows how to bless us! We must seek Him with all of our hearts and never stop looking for GOOD; even in difficult situations. He will help us discover amazing things when we TRUST in the power of His love.
Dear God, thank you for waking us in blessings! We feel the power of Your love as we begin our prayers in PRAISE. Thank you for sweet surprises! They fill our souls so greatly! We will open our eyes to ALL You provide and find reason to be thankful. Thank you for reaching us in mighty ways! It helps us remember who is working for the GOOD. This is the day YOU have made. We WILL rejoice and be GLAD. We're SO GRATEFUL for the love of Your faithfulness. Thank you, Lord. From the bottom of our hearts, we will continue to appreciate ALL You do to guide and provide for each one of us. Amen
