Father, GOD, today I saw man without a leg. I have a dear friend suffering through 6 months of recovery for surgery. I see what is going on in Ukraine where parents are burying their babies. I hurt over families who are breaking their vows. I saw two little children who suffer with autism, a good friend is suffering with prostate cancer, and the uncertainty in our country…
I am so ashamed for anytime I complain about my life today and need a regular reminder to be grateful for all You have given me. I know there are scores of Your people who would gladly trade places with me, and forgive me when I am not grateful enough for all Your blessings.
Make me mindful day by day that I must be grateful every day in every circumstance. Help me find the way to praise and bless Your name in all the darkest days of my life from here to the end. This is pray with a grateful heart today, in Jesus’ name. Amen
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength. Habakkuk 3:17-18
