“Give thanks unto the Lord,” Psalm 107 admonishes us, “for He is good; His love endures forever” (verse 1). If you want to feel better physically, if you want a better outlook on life, remember that verse.
Every morning when you get up, instead of fretting and complaining, instead of turning to the media to see how bad everything is, just go and look out of the window. Take a deep breath and say, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” It makes you feel better just to think of doing that, doesn’t it? How much better it will make you feel if you follow that practice every day!”
These words hit me right between the eyes this morning as I was seeking God’s will for me today. These two small paragraphs gave me direction and guidance to walk with me through today and that is all that God asks of me; to depend on Him for what I need for just this one day in my life…and to leave the worries of tomorrow in tomorrow.
I am going to Him and seeking to touch His Spirit that resides inside of me for the strength to keep moving forward on day 6 of my fast. I am seeking Him with an attitude of gratitude and love…because He cares about me and what I place inside of my body.
