Praising God in Prayer!
Yesterday, I found myself spending too much time thinking about what I didn't have or what upcoming things I needed to get done! Yep...it did damper my mood and I knew better. However, I’m so thankful for God's love and mercy and this morning that He revealed a devotion to get me back on track. Titled "Praising God in Prayer," the devotional discussed how we should praise God for making everything and supplying our needs. I was tasked to write down 10 things I was grateful for and to share.
-My relationship with God…no matter how many times I fail He is always there!
-Marriage to my loving and supportive husband.
-My son Braylon’s growth and development.
-My son Kaleb being here with us! Being born at 25 weeks (1 lb and 9ozs) and currently doing well with his therapies.
-Health/Mental state – blessed to not have any sickness in my family.
-Home that is centered on God. (Having shelter, working appliances, food, clothing, etc….our needs met)
-Loving and supportive family that is close.
-Ability to share God’s word to encourage others and use of my talents to build his kingdom.
-Working vehicles to transport my family safely.
-Heart to love and help others.
As you can see, this is just a sample of how grateful I am to God. We all could spend the rest of our lives writing such a list. All I can say is that God is good….ALL THE TIME! No matter what the situation may be, God is there! Supplying all of our needs! Writing this list has
shifted my attitude and I’ve asked God to renew my mind daily…every minute!
Psalm 145:1-2 states:
“I will exalt you, my god the King; I will praise your name forever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name forever and ever.”
Today, dig deep and pray for all the things that God has done for you. What are you grateful for today?
