Clean the counters; put the coffee on; wash my hands; look out the window. Smile. My busyness ceased for a few, as I beheld the sky full of lovely pink tinted clouds. A smile immediately burst upon my face. “O God, You are so good! Thank You for this gift!” We have so much to be thankful for, little things and big things.
Yes, good morning, my Lord. There is none like YOU. When I looked out my window this morning, and saw those pink tinted clouds saying “I bless your day, Mary!” My heart sang, “You are almighty God, Creator of the universe. You are the Alpha and the Omega! You have set the stars in place and named them all. You ordained beauty in our skies and on our earth. There is none greater than You! And You love me?”
Lord not only did You give us Jesus to teach us and die for us, You then sent Holy Spirit to indwell us, and from that close position, teach us, guide us, and protect us. We are Your kids and You love us so much! Because You love us we can trust You; You even wrote us a book, and in it You promised us many things, and You are always true to Your Word! Oh my God! Thank You!
As the years fly by, it becomes more work to remain healthy. The activities of youth have used up some of the body stamina and joint usage. Yes, pain has become a part of life, but it’s ok. I can deal with it, and it is not constant. It just reminds me to be thankful for the wonderful physical condition God designed for me. When nasty C attacked my body, You, Jesus, were right there walking every step of the way with me, bringing me to victory; and You brought out of me a book telling the world how one can go through hard times with joy in their hearts.

Loving Father, this morning I want to thank You for mercy and grace. I am so imperfect, but You love me anyway! You continue to work with me, molding me, shaping me into the person You created me to be. Help me fulfill the potential You put in me. Give me words to convict, to open eyes to see. Let Your love flow through me to everyone I come in contact with; pour Your Words through me to hearts today as I work; guide me Holy Spirit today and everyday.
Psalm 103:1 (NLV) Praise for God’s Love
Praise the Lord, O my soul. And all that is within me, praise His holy name.
My God, You love us all so much! We are Your beloved children, and You care for us each moment of the day (when we let You). I trust You. I love You. I praise and worship You alone, my beloved Lord!
