Today and Every Day

Today and every day, give thanks, with a grateful heart!

In the midst of the storm when the tempest is raging, give thanks – the Master who calms the troubled seas is by your side.

When the future looks bleak, give thanks – the God of Hope goes before you and prepares the way.

When your strength is depleted, give thanks – He gives strength to the weak and rest to the weary.

When the enemy comes in like a flood and you feel defeated, give thanks – the ‘God of Angel Armies’, your Defender, walks beside you.

When it seems that all is lost and all you have worked for has come to nothing, give thanks – your Heavenly Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

When the cupboards are bare, the accounts are empty, and the prospects are grim, give thanks – Jehovah Jireh is your Provider.

When you feel alone, isolated and lonely, give thanks – He will never leave you or forsake you.

When you feel unloved, unwanted and misunderstood, give thanks – the Almighty God of the Universe loves you with an everlasting, unconditional love.

When you have lost your way, give thanks – your good Shepherd is leading you through the valley of darkness into a place of vast verdant fields and cool refreshing water.

When illness and pain have gripped your body and soul, give thanks – your Great Physician knows the cure and there is healing in His wings.

When nations are in turmoil, battles abound and the people are filled with fear, give thanks – the King of Heaven rules over all the earth.

When life seems futile, hopeless and without purpose, give thanks – the God of all the ages knows your name and has engraved it on His hand.

In all things give thanks, with a grateful heart, for God is good indeed!
