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 and opens our hearts for PRAISE. It allows us to recognize God’s provisions and remember who handles our days. God 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 and become aware of His goodness in our lives. He cuts through layers of doubt and allows us to discover what's been hidden inside. He helps us examine our hearts so we will see what is missing and recognize ALL He provides. He shows us amazing things.
God helps us develop appreciation for the many ways He surprises us in the timing of His will. As we begin our prayers in PRAISE, He places JOY In our hearts and grows desire to LOOK for His sweet rewards.
“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 believing in the power of His plan. God will guide, provide and find the way to help us remember there will never be a day without His faithful love. He will OPEN our hearts to receive and be honored when we SEE what is GOOD.
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
