“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 103:1-2

TODAY’S WORD…

.

My soul, give thanks to the Lord

all my being, bless His holy Name.

My soul, give thanks to the Lord

and never forget all His blessings.

.

– Psalm 103:1-2 (The Grail)

REFLECTION…

.

We regularly go to God

to ask Him for favours

and to ask Him to help us achieve our plans and our ambitions.

.

We habitually approach the Lord

moaning about our problems, our burdens, our sorrows…

.

But how often do we lift our heart, mind and soul to the Almighty,

to give Him thanks and praise for all He does for us?

.

How often have we gone back to Him

to thank Him for answering our prayers

and for granting us His grace?

.

Have we ever gone back to thank God

for those prayers that seem to have remained unanswered,

knowing and accepting that He only grants what is ultimately good for our soul?

.

We really need to stop complaining.

We really must go before the Lord our God more frequently

to thank Him with all our heart

for His great love and care for us.

.

We really need to recall all the situations He has brought us through;

all the times He has calmed the storms of our life;

all the times He has shown us just how good He is;

all the many blessings He has given us.

.

We really need to stop and count His blessings

…and heartfully thank Him for them!

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

O Lord, my God, You are faithful!

Thank You for carrying me through life.
