Practice Giving Thanks

Psalm 136 verse 1 tells us to "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever."

Are we thankful?  Do we give thanks?  And to whom do we thank?

Interesting thoughts.  It's easy to be ungrateful, to complain about how tough life is.  How much we don't have, or if we just had a little more, than our lives would be better, be easier.

Really?  In my life, I've had the highs and lows of life.  Sometimes the well-watered springs of plenty and comfort and sometimes the desert experiences of loss and hardship.  But the one constant is the Lord.  And I can say for all the comfort and hardship, God is good, his love endures forever. 

Giving thanks is, for most of us, a habit that will need to be practiced until it becomes a part of our speech, our thinking.  So I encourage you, each day, to find at least one point to give thanks to the Lord for and to say His love endures forever...and forever is a long time!
