November 2nd – Psalm 9:1

Psalm 9:1

Have you ever taken the time to thank God? I mean really thank God? Each night as part of my nightly prayer, I would absentmindedly thank Him for the blessings of the day. And far from being sincere, my gratefulness had become nothing more than routine. But when I truly understood that from the moment I wake, until I go to sleep at night, and each moment in between, is a beautiful blessing from God, my heart overflowed with thankfulness. For each day is truly a gift from above.

 

November 1st – I Chronicles 16:34

I Chronicles 16:34

What does it mean that God is good? It means that He is as pure as light in which no evil can be found. It means He always does what is right. And it means that He is honest, faithful, and true; even when we are not. Oh how very thankful I am that God is good. For it is from that goodness which flows His never ending perfect love. A love He freely offers to all, a love unmerited, and a love that blows all others away. For so strong is God’s love for us, He gave His only Son to redeem us. And that is everything to be thankful for.
