Thankful for Each Day
JOHN SHIRK – Psalm 118:24 reminds us that “this is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
When we woke up this morning, we were given another opportunity to live for the glory of God. As we think of His blessings in a given day, we are moved to thanksgiving. A pastor named George Butterick once said, “Perhaps we should try to write down the blessings of one day. We might begin; we could never end; there are not pens or paper enough in all the world.”
We can thank God for His opportunities in a given day to be a witness for Jesus. We can thank Him for His strength to do what He calls us to do. We can thank Him for having a clear purpose to serve others for the glory of His name. We can thank Him for His provisions like food, clothing, and shelter. We can thank the LORD for those special people he places in our lives who are a treasure to us. We can thank God for the gift of His Son Jesus, who is our greatest blessing of all. It will make a difference in our attitude if we remember to give thanks to God for His many blessings.
That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.
