Think on these things...
"Don't think of the things you 'didn't' get after
praying. Think of the countless blessings God gave
you without even asking."
I cannot help but wonder sometimes how God is able
to keep up with it all. I struggle to remember the
things I am supposed to get done each day, I struggle
to remember phone calls I am supposed to return, I
even struggle at times remembering names of people
I just met! However, our God knows everything we
could possibly need and provides it even when we
don't remember to ask for it... Or worse, when we
simply forget to thank Him for it.
"For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and
His ears are open to their prayer." (1 Peter 3:12a)
The one who created the universe and everything in
it has His ear attuned to your prayers and is willing
to listen to each and every word you utter. He even
has the Holy Spirit to interpret those moments when
you cannot even fashion the things you feel into
words. (Romans 8:26-27) What a mighty God we
truly serve... May we all re-dedicate ourselves today
to a time of thanksgiving to our Creator.
One final thought: What if you woke up today with
ONLY what you thanked God for yesterday?
1 John 4:7-21
