Everyday Living!

Lord, Thank You For Today!

Lynette HarrisonLord, Thank You For Today!
Written By Lynette Harrison

Scripture says weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5). And, unless you've done some deep heart wrenching weeping, you can never fully appreciate the joy that comes in the morning.  The release in expecting new beginnings, new hope, fresh horizons, and newness of spirit is absolutely awesome!  The glory is God's because it is him that restores, renews, refreshes, regenerates, and rejuvenates our spirits in its weakened state.  It is He that answers our cry, and it is He that takes upon Himself to give us of Himself- His love, His peace, and His joy. 

Thank God that we serve a God that can feel and be touched by our infirmities and sorrows. Thank God that we serve a God that is hands-on and concerned about every aspect of our lives. Thank God that we serve a God that loves us so much that He gave Himself as the sacrifice and price for our spiritual separation from death. 

In our everyday lives, let us generate an attitude of gratitude and thanksgiving to God in all things.  Let us deliberately choose to offer the praise of thanksgiving whether it's for the grace we experience every second, every minute, every hour, or every day; for Christ's grace is more than enough for us. 

We have so much to be thankful for, therefore, let us purposely count our blessings every day.  Only then can we fully appreciate the cost that was paid by the person of Christ with blood for our redemption and reconciliation with God.  Lord, we give you praise, honor, and glory for you alone are worthy.  Lord, we thank you for today!

God is a giver and we, like Him, should be givers as well. Itís not about what we can get but what God gives. It is written: "for freely have you received so freely giveĒ (Matthew 10:8). Itís not a matter of what we can do for the Kingdom of God but more a matter of whether or not God can trust us with the Kingdom. Are you a vessel fully submitted to God that he can trust?
