Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
When things go well, we are all too ready to take credit for it! We apparently need to be reminded that we are the guests at the party, not the hosts. And like children, we sometimes need somebody to tell us to say thank you!
Generally, when things go well, we get so caught up with the rhythm and routine of life that we forget that we are being blessed. We start to take it all for granted.
When things go wrong, it's easy to remember to turn to the Lord. Let me not wait for things to go wrong. So far, today looks like an ordinary day, so today, let me remember to give thanks for the ordinary. Let me be ever mindful that I am blessed!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
