Noah Gives Thanks to God for Preserving Him from the Flood
Thankfulness comes pretty easily for me. If I had a personalized license plate on my care, which I don't, it would say, grazie. I am always ready to say THANK YOU for all the good things in my life. I have more blessings than I think I deserve. I sometimes think that having the words THANK YOU engraved on my tombstone would be a great idea.
But when I really think about I also remember the many ways in which I turn away from all the wonderful gifts I've been given. I don't always appreciate things like being cooped up in the house all winter and being away from my camper so long.
Gifts of love are bestowed on me each and every day and so often I don't even notice them. I do have a nice warm home to keep me warm and safe.
I have a lot of growing to do as far as being grateful is concerned.
Remember the marvels the Lord has done
Too often I am thankful for the big things in my life. But we don't have to have be saved from the biggest flood in history as Noah was, in order to be thankful. There are countless little things in our life to be thankful for. And in being thankful, we can't always be looking at what could be, but be grateful for what is.
Thursdays are my day to show my gratitude, I hope that you can make this a day of THANKFULNESS too!
It's a day to bow down and look up and give thanks for where all the coming always come from: His good, good hands.
