I am thankful

Psalm 92:1King James Version (KJV)

92 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:

''Thank you Lord for your blessings on me! There is a roof up above me, I've a good place to sleep, there's food on my table , and shoes on my feet, you gave me your love Lord, and a fine family, Thank you Lord for your blessings on me.''

As I sit here sipping my wonderful cup of coffee, I also am sipping on God's Goodness... When you say ,''Thank you Lord..''.. do you really mean it? Do you come with a humble heart THANKING Him for ALL He has done?? That is a hard pill to swallow. It really should NOT be difficult if we stop to think of EVERYTHING He gives us EVERYDAY.. Stuff we take for granted, food, clothes,  HEAT AND AIR,  transportation.  Think about when you were a kid, and all the stuff your parents did for you to provide for you..  and then those SPECIAL things they did for you. You showed them how THANKFUL you were for them. Think about the Lord and what HE daily LOADS us with benefits... what if we NEVER were thankful...I am so thankful for His unfailing love and the grace HE gives everyday. I am thankful for my salvation, my Christian Home, and my husband, and our health. I am thankful for our families and that we have been blessed with great times again this year, and made precious memories together, stuff money CAN NOT buy!!!
This year I am especially thankful for answered prayer and the opportunities He has allowed me and hubby to serve Him more. We are so blessed. We are thankful for the ways He has allowed our schedules to be open at certain times to do things for others and to serve Him together. Around a year and a half ago, I was just down about everything.. just felt let down.. full of hurt, and a lot questions, not really knowing  what would be next.. wondering what the Lord wanted for me .. today, I am thankful for blessings that at that time, were already in the making.. Stuff I could do for Him and not for anybody else. Today, I am thankful that I can use my talent and abilities to serve Him, and that makes ME happy.Sipping on the Goodness He gives to me, in HIS time..
How can we thank Him for all HE has done. We will NEVER be able to thank Him enough. Just as we pray when we want a specific need or want to be met, We can pray and thank Him for everything He has done and will do.Prayer is a wonderful thing, and each time we do and come before Him, we should remember to thank Him already for the bountiful blessings we have received. 
Just stop and think of ALL you are thankful for today!! If you were able to get up out of bed today, eat a great meal with your family, or even more, READ this post, you have a lot to be thankful for!!
Thank you Lord for all your many blessings!
It is NOT thankful people who are Happy, It is HAPPY people who are THANKFUL!!
