God Is Good

1 10-3 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:   1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.

 

The Bible doesn’t say, “Give thanks to the Lord when you feel good or when things are going good”.  It says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good”.  Giving thanks shouldn’t be based on how we feel, it should be based on who God is, and He is good. There is always something to be thankful for.

Children Are A Blessing

1 9-23 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 127:3

Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord.

 

Every child is a blessing and a gift from God, unique and special in their own way.  It is up to us to guide and protect them and to teach them the ways of the Lord.  Inspire and encourage your children by being an example of what it is to be a child of God.  Pray for your children and ask God to bless them and don’t forget to thank the Lord for this special blessing.

Thankful

1 9-15 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:12

To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

 

We have so much to be thankful for.  Even if our lives are not perfect, even if we have troubles, we still have so much to be thankful for.  No matter what is going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for.   God is good, take time right now to thank him for all the good in your life.

Enjoy Life

1 ecclesiastes 3 12.jpg

Ecclesiastes 3:12

Verse of the Day:   Ecclesiastes 3:12

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.

 

God has given you the gift of life and he wants you to be happy and enjoy it.  Spend time doing things that make you happy with the people you love and enjoy the blessings of God with a thankful heart.

Dark Days

1 psalms 42 5

Psalms 42:5

Verse of the Day:   Psalms 42:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

 

Life is not always sunshine and flowers.  There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in, or when we just feel lonely.  In these times we need to lift our head toward God and give praise to our Savior.  Thank him for all the good in your life.  Put your hope in him and rely on him to get you through even the darkest of days.

A Happy Heart

Proverbs15.15

Proverbs 15:15

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 15:15

All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.

 

You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy.  The way to a happy heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder.  Be grateful for the little things that God can use to fill your heart with joy.
