Father-God, Your blessings are too numerous to mention. Your glory is too marvelous for mere words to describe. You pour out Your love on the just and the unjust. You are ever faithful to Your people, to the sheep of Your pasture. Many scoff at those who love You. Many deny You are there. Many try to put You into a box, to define You by their own criteria, but they fail. Your thoughts are not our thoughts, and Your ways not our ways. Father, reveal Your glory!
I thank You today because I am able to sit down to table with my family, with my daughters and their husbands, with my mom, with my grandchildren. I thank You for the food that You have provided. Bless it, Lord, to the nourishment of our bodies. Draw those who don't yet know You to Yourself. Keep us close and safe in Your loving arms. Teach us to be truly grateful throughout our lives. In the precious name of Jesus, my Lord and my King. Amen
Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the LORD Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates awith thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the LORD is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.
