Grateful to God

Are we continously aware of the many blessings from God?

Psalm 116:12

Can we ever repay God for all God has done for us? Do we fully understand what the Lord has and is doing for us? From our daily breath, bread, and blessings we may never truly know.

What we can do is take time to consider what God has done for us today. Even in times of turmoil we should appreciate the good God is doing for us. We may not be able to see the good but we must not let the bad overwhelm our view of God’s presence.

If we continually notice what God is providing for us, especially when things are going well for us, then it won’t be as difficult when times are worse. If during the highs we credit the good coming from us then we are falling into our egos and away from God.

The more we appreciate all that God has provided to us in our lives the more we can find the good in even the smallest things. Even when others may complain about a circumstance, we can be grateful for the good present.

Once our eyes are focused on God we can never stop seeing God even in the worst of situations. Let us never stop seeing the good God is and is doing for us.
