Grateful

We have so very much to be thankful for to our heavenly Father. Exodus 34:6 says “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness…” Every once in a while I stop and look around. I marvel at the mercy and grace that God has showered on us. We did not deserve this. There is nothing in the world…no human energy, strategy or cleverness that can merit God’s unmerited favor on us. When I do take the time to pause and think about God’s blessing on our lives, it causes an overwhelming sense of gratitude. But here is the kicker…how does one thank God who blesses without reason? Maybe the more important question would be ‘How often do I stop and thank God for such a rich life?’
