“I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs” – Psalm 69:30-31

What are you thankful for? For what do you praise the LORD?

Take a moment, take a deep breath, and ask yourself these two questions.

I know. We’re right in the middle of a pandemic. The numbers keep getting worse and the stories keep getting scarier by the day.

But…

I love this word. Because everything changes after this word.

But, I want you to take your eyes off the pandemic and focus on praise and thanksgiving. Take a good look at your life right now and ask, “What am I thankful for? For what do I praise the LORD?”

I mean it. Seriously. Do this.

Here are things I am grateful for.

First, I am thankful that the Little Church and Lakewoodgrace people all have houses to stay in. That none of us have to wonder where we’re getting our next meal. Everyone I’ve spoken with has plenty of food, a comfortable house, a nice TV, access to books, the internet, movies, a smart phone, and even toilet paper!

Thank you God! Praise the LORD! I thank God my family and the church family are well.

Secondly, I thank God for this time. Without the Covid-19 virus, there’s no way I would have had this much time with my college girls. I can’t remember the last time where we shared so many meals together, had so many game nights and movie nights. I am loving having the college girls home. This may very well be the last time we get to hang out like this as a family for this duration of time for the rest of our lives!

Thank you God! Praise the LORD! I thank God for this time with my family.

So, what are you thankful for? For what do you praise the LORD? I would love for you to comment and share with others what you are thankful for.
