Gratitude #4...Another and Another

January 25, 2012

Psalm 103:1-5

V 2 bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits

God has given me so much…that’s a fact that we often forget. In the devotion I read today, Nancy Leigh DeMoss spoke about a woman she meet recently who had memorized and meditated on scripture for many years. One of the things that stood out about this lady is the fact that she never really suffered from anxiety or depression. What did she do? Well, she would recite Psalm 103…while doing that she would be reminded of the many blessings we have as believers. Choosing to focus on what we do have instead of whatever problem she had helped her to stop worrying about it. I’m satisfied it would do the same for us also. Our assignment for today is to start a list, two actually, one titled “Gifts from God” and one “Gifts from Others”. Each day we are to think on this and add to our list. It’s often easy to list all that is wrong in our lives or all the things people have done to hurt us. This exercise will force us to think about the good not the bad.
