Wednesday Words of Encouragement

Psalm 100:4-5 (NIV) ~

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Let's do an exercise together today.  Get out a piece of paper and a pen and put it somewhere near you today - on  your desk at work, on your counter at home as you cook or in your purse as you travel.  Pray and ask the Lord to show you the many blessings you have in your life, no matter how small.  Each time one pops into your head, write it down.  I guarantee you that at the end of the day your page will be full.

So often we go through life either not thinking about the good in our life, or we can't think of anything because we are so focused on the negative.  Let's do this one small exercise together.  Tomorrow as you sit down for your meal, pull out your list and read out those blessings.  You will find that your cup is overflowing!

I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow!  Enjoy the meal, enjoy your family and friends.  But more importantly, enter into the celebration with a thankful heart and a mouth ready to give praise to the Lord for all He has done for you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
