Give Thanks to the Lord

“Give thanks to the Lord,

call on His name;

make known among the nations

what He has done.

Sing to Him, sing praise to Him;

tell of His wonderful acts.


Glory in His holy name;

let the hearts of those

who seek the Lord rejoice.


Look to the Lord and His strength;

seek His face always.”

– I Chronicles 16:8-11

Let’s face it:

2020 has been a ridiculously unpredictable year. It’s been frightening, depressing, and sometimes exciting. Some of the things that have happened so far in 2020 probably would have never entered our minds last year.

We would have said, “Whaaat?!”

Even so,

if you stop and think about it, there have also been many blessings.

Stop and be silent.

Think on the blessings that the Lord bestows on each of us daily.

In the words of the old hymn,

“Count your many blessings,

name them one by one.”

Count Your Many Blessings

Good health.
The joy of helping others.
A surprise visit or phone call from a friend.
A beautiful day.
A hug.
Comfort in sorrow.
Help with struggles.
A good report from your doctor.
Completing a task. Graduating.
The birth of a grandchild.
The purchase of a forever home.
A much-needed vacation.
An impromptu picnic or date with your sweetheart.
The comfort of home.
The love and support of friends and family.

Those are just a few that have come to mind.

Make your own list.

The Lord blesses us in SO many ways. Even if the world seems to have lost its ever-living mind, our Lord remains constant.

Give thanks to Him.
Call on His name.
Make His name known everywhere.
Look to Him. Seek Him always.

God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Give Thanks Along With Me!

    Michele & Mandy I’m having technical issues with InLinz with their updated login, apparently my tablet is now too old for the update version! So I will leave my post link below to still join in this community 😀
