Thanks


Psalm 9 says, “I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Thy wonders.  I will be glad and exult in Thee.”  Immediately my mind raced with through hundreds of blessings for which I have never given thanks to God.  For example, I am planning a trip from Kentucky to Texas.  I am free to drive the entire way, taking any route I choose, without stopping at checkpoints along the way.  There are no borders, no security checks, and  I can play songs and sing along, “Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing.  Power and majesty, praise to the King…”  I can put stickers all over my van to let people know I love Jesus.  I can even put political stickers like, “I Like Mike,” and I don’t have to be afraid of the Gestapo or any other opposition group knocking me off.  I am free in so many ways to worship and serve.  I am truly thankful to be alive in America, in Shepherdsville, KY, today.  It’s so easy to slip into the pooh-pooh mindset of cynicism, but, today, I will not.  I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart.”
