With a song // 08-02-22

โ€œI will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.โ€ Psalm 69:30 NKJV

What are you thankful for as you wake up this morning? Unless we intentionally go there, our minds will automatically go to the worries and the potential stresses of the day ahead. We tend to magnify the negative in our lives, making things much bigger than they usually are. That’s why thanksgiving is so vital, because it magnifies God above the obstacles and issues. It shifts our mindset from despair to hope, from mourning to joy, from problems to solutions, from fretting to peace, from myself to God! Choosing to think about Him, forming words of thanks and praise on my lips and expressing them in a song strengthens my heart, builds my faith and guards my mind. Lord, thank you that Youโ€™re with me and You love me, thank You that You will never leave me, thank You that You can make a way even when I canโ€™t see it, and You have a plan when I am out of ideas. Thank You that I am still breathing and You are still reigning. Thank You that my life IS in Your very capable hands Amen ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Š
