I’ve Got So Much to Thank Him For

on February 8, 2012

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise:  be thankful unto him: and bless his name.”  Psalm 100:4

The good thing about knowing God is knowing that there’s always something to be thankful for, even in the grimmest of circumstances.  We always have so much to thank him for!  First and foremost, we can thank God for salvation.  Without His willingness to offer His Son for the sacrifice and redemption of our sins, we’d be hopefully lost.  The ability to get up and see another day would not be possible if it weren’t for God’s mercy and protection.

God also created a beautiful Earth on which we live.  His beauty is magnified in the creation around us.  He gave us the ability to love and be loved.  The companionship we find in our family and friends is a blessing straight from God.  He also gave us the ability and desire to have a unique relationship with Him.

Today I challenge you to reflect upon the things, people, and places in which you are thankful.  In doing so, you will be overjoyed with a continuous attitude of thankfulness and praise.

“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good:  because his mercy endureth forever.”  Psalm 118:1
