Giving Thanks


“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods: His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.
To him who alone does great wonders: His Love endures forever.
Who by his understanding made the heaves: His love endures forever.
Who spread out the earth upon the waters: His love endures forever.
Who made the great lights: His love endures forever.
The sun to govern the day: His love endures forever.
The moon and stars to govern the night: His love endures forever.”

Psalm 136:1-9

I continually have to remind myself that everything on this earth, whether it is in my possession or not, belongs to our father in heaven. At times it is easy to forget this and become self-centered and worried about the material things in our lives. At times we need to step back and remember that God has just entrusted us to make the right decisions in our daily lives. To live our lives for his will.


Dear God, I thank you for all that you have given me, all of the beautiful things on this earth, as well as my worldly possessions. I know I will only be here a short time, but I pray for the wisdom to take care of things in a responsible way. Please remind me when I become too self-centered and put me back on the right track to live my life doing your will. In your son’s name I pray, Amen.
