It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High.
I just want to give thanks today for God's goodness to me.
For His Spirit and His Word
For every promise He has given and every word spoken directly to me through many avenues
For the health He has given to my family
For a husband who has loved and provided for me and my children
For my children that have made Him thier God
For dealing and working on the one who hasn't
For the sunshine, the rain, the beautiful world around us
For the Flowers, The singing birds, and the many other pleasant things he has created for our pleasure
For love and friendships
For every kind word spoken to me.
For all of the material blessings, A nice home, clothes etc.
The list could go on and on.
It is so often easier in our carnality to focus on the things that are wrong in our lives or even in our church or place of business. We can become so focused on "ourselves" and the problems we are facing that we can't even see the good things provided to us. Let's take some time today to count the many blessings around us. Let's also try to practice looking outward, thinking about how we can be a blessing instead of only thinking about I, My, Myself, My kids, My marriage , Me , me , me! Let's also practice leaving the "if only's" behind us. If only she, If only that, If only this, If only I!
You get the picture?
Believe me, I am preaching to myself as well. It takes an effort to change perspective, but it is so much more rewarding if we can.
Be Thankful Today!!
