Take stock of your blessings…beginning with your next breath.

(Listen to the song of the day “Give Praise and Thanks” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Psalm 118:1

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, his mercy endures forever.


Having an attitude of gratitude will change your life.

You are alive!

You have the gift of life and eternal life.

You are a spiritual being having a human experience.

You come from Love itself (1 John 4:8).

Being Love itself…God is most definitely good.

So do not fear but be thankful…even for the things that on the surface appear bad.

You can still work to change those things…but you must first accept what is as it is…because not accepting reality would be delusional.

You would only cause suffering for yourself by resisting it.

Once accepting the present moment…you can decide what step to take to change something that needs to change.

But as you accept the moment…you accept God’s presence with you in it.

God is always present…and God, being Love and Goodness, will always be with you…with a mercy that never ends.

Give thanks!
