Thank You, Lord

 "This is the day the Lord has made;We will rejoice and be glad in it."
~Psalm 118:24

Thank You, Lord

Lord, I thank You for this day,
I bless and praise Thy holy name!
I bless and sing Thy holy praise
For all Thy gifts to me You gave!
Holy, holy, is Thy name!
Thank You for my soul You saved;
Saved me from sin and the grave,
By Christ's blood, oh praise Thy name!

God's Word admonishes us to be thankful for all of the gifts and bessings which He showers down upon each of us every day. However, sometimes we can be blinded to the sense of God's Presence and His gifts to us and think that He has forgotten all about us. 
We may even think that He somehow loves us less than others because we end up comparing our lives to other people and think we've gotten a raw deal. 

Many things can cause this to happen. God knows and understands this perfectly. His grace meets each of us where we are. Just as the clouds can obscure the sun sometimes making it less visible does not mean it has gone away.  
Even so, illness, trials, any number of sad things can blind us to God's good gifts in our lives. 
But just as the sun is still shining even on the cloudiest of days, God's gifts to us are still there waiting to be discovered if we just open our eyes and stop focusing on the sad things. Being grateful releases joy in our hearts. 

Dear Heavenly Father, help us to see the wonders of Your grace all around us even during challenging times. Help us remember that there are no second class citizens in Your Kingdom...for You are no respecter of persons and love each of us as if we were the only one to love. How... Because You live inside of us and have each of us all to Yourself. We are Your very own precious temples and You cherish us. Thank You for the wonder of knowing and loving You! You are an awesome God! In Jesus' holy name, Amen
