"It is good to give thanks to the LORD and to sing praise to your name, Most High; to proclaim your gracious love in the morning and your faithfullness at night." Psalm 92:1-2

Thank God! There is so much to thank Him for today. Did you have food to eat for breakfast this morning? Give Him praise! Did you get to school today without getting hit by a vehicle? Give Him praise! And what if things did go badly? Thank Him for staying by your side through the tough parts as well as the parts of your day that went really well.

This has been a hard thing for me to do lately. Some things in my life haven't been going so smoothly. I've cried a lot of tears recently and I don't know what the future is going to look like. But when I took the time to thank God for what I do have that's been going right (my faithful friends, my family that loves me, this new blog, the vacation I was on recently, God's love, forgiveness and patience with me) I saw how much God had blessed me. It didn't make the problems in my life disappear, but I realized that there is so much more to life than just the issues that were bugging me.

Even if there doesn't seem to be one good thing in your life right now, praise Him anyway. Thank Him for every breath and for giving you another day filled with His forgiveness and love.
