Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. – Psalm 107:8-9

Speaking of thanking God, when was the last time that you thanked God for His love? We thank Him for our food, our things, and people in our lives. That’s all great, and we should continue to do that! But we need to remember to thank God for the love that He has for all of us and that is impossible to end.

An attitude of gratitude
“I’ll be happy when I get _____” is a triple trap. For one, it keeps you miserable as you wait impatiently to be fulfilled. Second, wanting more never satisfies, even if you get your first wish, because you then want still more. Third, it cheats you out of the happiness with the wealth that you already possess.Read More »
