Most of us wake up and just get up, if possible, and make coffee to start the day. We don’t wake up and thank God Who gave you the breath during the night to see this morning. We don’t thank God for the strength and the health that He gives us each day to do whatever we do. God gives each of us a number of days and years to live on this Earth and He gives us the strength to serve Him every day if we will live our lives doing that. So…why don’t we?
I wake up and try to remember to thank Him for allowing me to have one more day to serve Him. There are some days that I forget to thank Him but I usually get around to it before the day is too far gone. My point is that He gave His Son to pay the penalty for our sins so we could be useful and able to be His servants while we have the time to do so. Therefore, why can’t we thank Him every day for the blessings that will come on that day? The blessings may not be financial or healing but they could be a friend dropping by or the way your dog or cat makes you laugh. Some blessings aren’t easy to see but many times you will realize a blessing after it has happened and you will recognize it because it could only come from God.
Thank God for all of the little things and the big ones and your health and your family because you wouldn’t have them if it weren’t for His pleasure in giving them to you.

I thank God for being with me all throughout my 17 years on this Earth. Tomorrow is not promised, but I pray that I will leave someone to cherish on when I depart from this Earth.
When is your birthday?
Unless that’s getting too personal.
