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. No matter what we’re going through, He blesses us in many ways. He’s 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 shows how to cut through layers of doubt and see what is hidden inside. He helps examine our hearts so we will see what’s missing and learn to appreciate what He provides.
God grows us as we develop an attitude of thanks. As we begin our prayers in praise, He helps us notice the gifts of His greatness and welcome a special “surprise.” He places JOY In our hearts and gives us desire to keep looking for His 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 the GOOD. He will help us discover reward, even if we have to dig to find it.
Dear God, thank you for waking us in blessings! We feel the power of love as we begin our prayers in PRAISE. Thank you for Your 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 Your faithfulness. Thank you, Lord. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say, THANK YOU for loving us! Amen
