As I lay in bed in the happy place between asleep yet almost awake but wishing you could turn back to fully asleep, give thanks to the Lord for his great love…give thanks to for his wondrous acts are the first conscious thoughts that roll into mind. If memory serves correctly, they are the words from a passage of scripture I read in psalm a few days ago.
Before these little nuggets can escape, I grab my pen and scribble them down. Surely they have significance.
We often spill off a laundry list of things we are thankful for but how often is God’s love sitting at the top of the list? Or perhaps I should say how often do I have it sitting on the top of my grateful list?
We easily focus on the to do list and miss the who He is. Scripture reminds to be thankful for the very nature of God. It is from his loving nature that we receive the wondrous acts of God hands.
Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. Psalms 107:15 NLT
What if just for today we focus on being thankful for who God is rather than what we want to see done in our lives?
