“Lord, I will give thanks to you with all my heart.
I will tell about all the wonderful things you have done.”
Psalm 9:1 (NIRV)
What have I been challenged with this week? To be thankful in all things – even when my day doesn’t go as I expect or hope. To count my blessings – not just the big things – but the hundreds of little things that are good in my day. (Often which I just take for granted.) To not just think about these blessings as a passing thought, but to write them down – every little one – and to speak them out loud as a praise of thanksgiving to God. It is such a simple thing to do, but what a difference it has made for me in not ‘getting stuck’ in the negative things of life this week. It’s helped me to realign my focus on God, and to remember that He is the Creator and Giver of all good gifts.
“Every good gift, every perfect gift, comes from above. These gifts come down from the Father, the creator of the heavenly lights, in whose character there is no change at all.” (James 1:17 CEB)
It’s been a chilly week but the church is warm and the coffee is on. Come join us on Sunday for our 9:45am Sunday School and 11:00am Worship Service.
See you then!
