Praise Be To God

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation amoung all nations.  May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.  (Psalm 67:1-3 NIV)

Is God's face shining upon you?  Have you been able to recognize God's lovingkindnesses in your life this past day, week or year?  If you haven't seen God's blessing upon you then I would bet that you haven't looked very hard.  I would bet that you might be to focused inward at your problems rather than looking outward and upward to see the light of God all around you. 

I think that God blesses His children more than we realize.  When things are going bad, things could always be worse.  When things are going well, we oftentimes take the credit for ourselves.  And when our lives are just rolling along at an even keel we probably don't recognize all of the dangers God from which God has protected us.  Let's sing praise to God every day for who His, knowing that we cannot possibly know all of His workings in our lives.

Today's Task:

Take out your journal or a piece of paper and write down at least 25 things in your life that you are thankful for.  God has provided them for you!  Remember, you can be thankful in all things.  (i.e. even if you hate your job, you can be thankful that you have a job to pay the bills).   :)  Then say a prayer of thanks to God for all of your blessings.
