I had spent the day before murmuring and grumbling about how I wanted more and desired more. I tossed and turned in my bed contemplating strategies to get more and be more. I kept asking myself what was I doing wrong or what could I do better? I asked what is the one step I could take to move forward with all I was dreaming and wishing for.
Fast forward five months after, and it occurred to me last week that I am still struggling to live my life around the thought of engaging praises and thanksgiving as part of my life. I was still struggling to live my life regardless of my circumstances with praise and thanksgiving.
Why wait until November to be thankful for the blessings I have enjoyed over the years?
Why be blessed with what I need before I start being thankful for what I already have?
This is the thought I am taking with me through the rest of this week and month of August. An heart of thanksgiving and an attitude of praise shown towards a God who deserves far more than I can bring.
Psalm 74:14: I will hope continually, and will praise You yet more and more.
Beloved, You are Loved Absolutely!
