Praise and Gratitude

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24

No matter what you are going through today, no matter what you are facing, I just wanted to take a moment to remind you that God is still on the throne. This is wonderful news. This means that we can trust Him with all of our needs. We can rest knowing that He has everything under control. Even if you are dealing with something that you don’t understand, He does. Today, take some time out of your day to praise Him, and to extend gratitude. Tell Him how amazing He is. And tell Him all the things you are thankful for. This is guaranteed to turn your heart around. You will feel more peace inside as you focus on the good, instead of the bad. God blesses us and cares for us. He loves us and protects us. We have so much to be thankful for and we have so much to praise Him for.

I have breath in my lungs
My heart beats steady
I extend love to God
And greet the day
Praise the Lord

I have seen another sunrise
As dawn tells the night goodbye
Displaying God’s artwork
Across the sky
Praise the Lord

I have the gift of salvation
A debt I can never repay
Jesus took my place
On a cross in Calvary
Praise the Lord

I look forward to eternity
Singing to our Savior
Every day with Jesus
Loving Him forevermore
Praise the Lord

    • So very true! It seems so easy to let discouragement in, and our gratitude flees. But if we make gratitude and praise a habit, I think it will get easier to hold onto both. I am glad you enjoyed the post. Thank you for commenting. 🤗
