I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us—yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses.
The God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac is a good God. Gratitude and thanksgiving are essential to our growth as believers. It is woven into our very being. The urge to say thank you, the smile we return to that stranger because he held the door open for us, the mail man, the waitress, that teacher after all these years. It’s an inherited character. So why not just stop for a moment, push the needs to the side and (like seriously) take stock of all the wonderful things the Lord has done in your life and be grateful to the King of kings. Like a tree he planted, he has watered, protected, and pruned. Not given up yet. Be grateful!
Thank you Lord for a life worth living. Thank you for the air, wisdom, faith, patience, grace, and the concern for my growth. I am and will be forever grateful.
