Building One Another - Vol 12 No 27

Dear Friend,
“It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High.” Psalm 92:1*
When you give thanks to the Lord, your mind shifts from the anxieties that so easily consume you to the loving Lord of the universe who loves to refresh you.
“It is good to give thanks to the Lord.
The Psalmist tells us why, “For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy." Psalm 92:4
God loves to bring gladness into your life, “Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure.” Psalm 16:9
The very act of thanks-giving brings gladness to the heart. 
This week I encourage you to be especially alert to the works of the Lord that have brought gladness into your life – be specific:           People who have brought you gladness,
                 Events that have brought you joy,                       Things that have brought you delight, and especially,                             God’s incredible love and affection for you,                                                                                         –and give thanks.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord!
