As I was researching a source for a project today, I was suddenly reminded of a joyous reason be thankful. Each day, as we go about our tasks and work, we inevitably come upon these special moments. Moments that reveal the hand of God at work in our lives.
Psalms 28:7 NLT
“The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.”
It’s in these moments of revelation that we are truly aware that we are living abundant lives. These joyous moments that mark our day with the knowledge that we are never alone. These are the moments when we are aware that we are covered by the strength of God’s love. These are the moments when we see God’s grace woven throughout our lives.
Even down to the simplest of things. Things that we aren’t even aware of until, suddenly, we see the results. These are the moments we have to stop and be thankful. Stop and be in the moment. Stop and be joyously thankful. In these moments, stop and thank God from a heart filled with joy.
