I heard a woman share a testimony of a healing that she said she still thanks God for over three years later. I am humbled by her story because I have had a bad habit of spending a lot more time praying for things from God than taking the time to thank Him. In fact, I often have given Him a quick “thanks” and moved quickly forward to my next prayer request. Just recently, however, I spent some time going back through the years remembering and thanking God for all that He has delivered me from. What a joy it was to recall so many breathtaking blessings. I wonder how many of us need to spend more time praising Him – not just for what He has done for us, but also for who He is to us.
Lord, forgive me for falling short in my thanksgiving, for not taking enough time to acknowledge your amazing goodness. You know my heart, Lord. You know how much I love you. Please forgive me for not always expressing what fills up my heart – my endless love for you! Amen.
