Thank You Lord

Early mornings are a wonderful time for reflective thought. In the busyness of the week, these moments of clarity allow one to step back and think about all the blessings to be grateful for. 

Why do our hearts always long for more? Why do we believe the lie that the next relationship, promotion, or vacation will bring us the peace we long for. News flash: our hearts will always desire more because our hearts long for the peace that only Christ can give us. 

Application:

1. Write down what the world would tell you, will bring happiness. How does that differ with God's word?  

2. Write down all the blessings in your life and thank the Lord for each. 

3. Reflect on this verse: “Whom have I in heaven but you?  And earth has nothing I desire besides you.  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Psalm 73:26-26).
