Thanks for Everything!
Posted: Saturday, December 17
Verse of the day:
“Give thanks to him who made the heavenly lights—His faithful love endures forever.
The sun to rule the day, His faithful love endures forever. The moon and stars to rule the night. His faithful love endures forever.”(Psalm 136:7-9)
One of the keys to happiness is having a thankful heart. This is a lesson that Josh and I have started to try to teach our daughter Chloe. When she receives something we encourage her to say “Thank you” but so far all she does is smile and wave “bye-bye.” She’ll get there though!
Thankfulness is something that serves us well all life long, no matter what we are facing. There is always something to be thankful for. If you are ever feeling down and not feeling grateful read through Pslam 136. The Psalmist reminds us of some of the many wonderful things that God has done. He made the Sun, the moon, and the stars. Aren’t you so thankful that He created them to give us light to see, and created the sun to bring us warmth? Can you imagine a world with no sunsets to enjoy?
If you enjoy those things say thank you to God! Praise Him for what He has done. If you don’t know where to begin, thank Him for every good thing that you see! A thankful heart will always do you good!
