Think & Thanks

When I think about the things that God has done for me and in my life, I can’t help but give thanks to Him. He is the Source of all good things. He is the Creator and Sustainer of Life & I should be so thankful.  The problem comes when I don’t think about Him. I take for granted that He’s there and He’s multi-tasking behind the scenes. I must think about these things because when I think about these things, I begin to be thankful.  Check this out….

1 Thank the Lord because he is good.
       His love continues forever.
 2 That is what those whom the Lord has saved should say.
       He has saved them from the enemy
 3 and has gathered them from other lands,
       from east and west, north and south.
 4 Some people had wandered in the desert lands.
       They found no city in which to live.
 5 They were hungry and thirsty,
       and they were discouraged.
 6 In their misery they cried out to the Lord,
       and he saved them from their troubles.
 7 He led them on a straight road
       to a city where they could live.
 8 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his love
       and for the miracles he does for people.
43 Whoever is wise will remember these things
       and will think about the love of the Lord. (Psalm 107:1-8; 43 NCV)

I want to think about the Lord and what He means in my life. When I think about Him, my heart begins to be thankful for Him and His Presence. I need His help to avoid going to Sin City and Death Valley.  I need to run after Him and away from the enticements of the evil one.  I need to think about the times I’ve cried out to God and He heard me and rescued me.  I will be wise to think about Him and then thank Him for all He has done and is doing in my life.
