Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever. – Psalm 106:1 NIV
Sometimes, in our rush to get things done, we simply don’t stop long enough to thank our Creator for the countless blessings He has bestowed upon us. After all, we’re busy people with many demands upon our time . . . and we have so much to do. But when we slow down long enough to express our gratitude to the One who made us, we enrich our own lives and the lives of those around us.
Thanksgiving should become a habit, a regular part of our daily routines. After all, God has blessed us beyond measure, His blessings are new every morning and so our praises should also be new every morning. We owe Him everything, including our constant praise.
So today, pause and count your blessings. Then, give thanks to the Giver. God’s love for you is never-ending; your praise for Him should be never-ending, too.
Nothing we do is more powerful or more life-changing than praising God. ~Stormie Omartian
Heavenly Father, today and every day I will praise You. I will praise You with my thoughts, my prayers, my words, and my deeds . . . now and forever. Amen
