Giving Thanks

Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.  Psalm 106:1 NIV

giving thanksOne night as I lay in bed, I thought, Well, nothing bad happened in my little corner of the world today. It was a slow news day in a slow news town. Just the way I like it. Thank You, Jesus.

I can pray and thank Jesus. There is nothing wrong with thanking our Lord or praying with other Christians. We are all praying for future peace and prosperity in our world. We are the old ones now. We pray for faith for all the young ones. They are the church of tomorrow. Even if it is faith at home for many, no one prays alone. I thank You, Jesus.  

As I paused to reflect before I turned off my lamp, I thanked the Lord for teaching us how to pray. Jesus does not need an iPhone to wake us or bless us with His divine grace. I thank You, Jesus.

Some Christians may feel a bit defensive, but we can all be warriors for peace. A truly good heart is often difficult to find, but Jesus is our role model to be good and kind. I thank You, Jesus.

In the same way, I can lie in my bed and think of the many others in faith on earth. We are all keeping well, and I pray that continues. Silently, I thank Jesus for the great job He performed. His sacrifice was to build our church.
Thank God that He is good and gave us Jesus. I hope to do a great job for my church. I thank You, Jesus.

What are some things you can thank Jesus for?
