Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. James 1:17 NLT
There will be moments when PRAISE will come; sweet expressions of thankfulness for the gifts of God’s greatness. But we may also experience frustration when it becomes difficult to see HOW He IS working for the GOOD.
Sometimes we look for “larger than life” moments to feel God’s presence. But often He uses subtle ways to remind us He is HERE. When we step from distractions and become silent and still, He helps us welcome timely rewards and understand HOW we have been blessed.
God never stops working to guide and provide. He orchestrates our days and knows what we NEED to embrace gratitude. From the moment we open our eyes, He blesses us with opportunities to be givers of PRAISE, experience the beauty of His creation and help others discover His amazing GRACE.
The Bible says, Create in me a clean heart, Oh God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Psalm 51: 10 NLT Sometimes we need to dig down deep, examine our thoughts and breathe in the fullness of mercy. God knows what we need to renew our hearts and fully understand we are valued and loved.
God WILL place PEACE in our hearts and give us STRENGTH. We must ready our souls to be reminded HE IS FAITHFUL. God will help us experience the LOVE of grateful heart. He will bless us in beautiful ways and be honored when we humble our hearts for His.
Dear God, Your love is powerful! YOU open our eyes as we take time to pray. YOU are deserving of PRAISE! Forgive us when distractions lead us far away and we try to handle life on our own. Renew our hearts as we trust in YOU. Thank you for the MANY ways You reward us. Thank you for what You provide EVERY day of our lives. You remind us who is working for GOOD and we are thankful for YOU. Thank you for MERCY, GRACE and Your never-ending LOVE. It fills us with what we NEED to welcome gratitude. Amen
