Thankfulness Starts Now

I have so much to be thankful for. Sometimes I get so busy that I forget, but this morning I’m reminded to be thankful, so thats what I’ll do.

Psalm 100 says to make a joyful noise to the Lord. Serve Him with gladness. Come before Him with singing and praise. So this morning, I’m going to do just that!

I’m thankful for a job, roof over my head, food in my cupboards. I’m thankful for a husband who loves me, daughters who’ve become friends, a ‘son’ who’s honorable and grandchildren who are just plain fun.

I’m thankful for great pastors who are here to serve God, not please man. I’m thankful for the affect their ministry has had on my life. They have encouraged me to go after God.

Most of all, I’m thankful for the blood of Jesus that was shed for me so I could stand forgiven before a holy God, right smack dab in the middle of His righteousness. I’m thankful that with that shed blood, it brought everything I have or will ever need in life.

I’m thankful that He walks with me and talks with me. I’m thankful for the opportunity to type these words and to bring before Him a sacrifice of praise each and everyday.

I’m thankful that when I say the name of Jesus, demons tremble and flee. There’s power in that name. Turmoil is chased away by the peace that rushes in.

I’m thankful for you who took the time to read this. I hope you will make a log of your own thankfulness and give God some Glory today! And may the peace of God that passes all understanding guard your heart and your mind. May you know that he lives inside of you and brings everything that you need today and everyday. In Jesus name, Amen
