Often schedules are cluttered, life is busy and problems are present. Most lead this type life on a consistent basis. During such times it is easy to fail to count our blessings. I do not want to become like the people the Psalmist wrote about in Psalm 106:21(NIV) "They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt." I do not want to forget His saving grace nor the great things He has accomplished in my life.
Today I want to be still and honestly reflect God’s goodness, blessings, and mercy. During busy times I find it necessary to list my daily plans and chores. This morning I have committed that in future cluttered and difficult days I will list a few of His ‘wonders’. This day I will notice the abundance of God in my life. Psalm 66:5 (Msg) “Take a good look at God's wonders—they'll take your breath away. He converted sea to dry land; travelers crossed the river on foot. Now isn't that cause for a song?” No, I haven’t crossed a river on foot but God has performed many other miracles for me. He always takes good care of me. Yes, it is cause for a song!
Psalm 71:15 (NIV) "My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure." If we talk about the good things of the Lord rather than dwelling on things we may face; joy, strength, and happiness will abound. Be strengthened in the Lord today!
