Weekly Gratitude Post

The words of the song "Bless The Lord" by Matt Redmond are on my mind this morning. 

"Bless the Lord O my soul
O my soul
Worship his holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship your holy name
The sun comes up
It's a new day dawning
It's time to sing your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes"

While there are more verses, this part is what comes to mind. It reminds me of the need to choose daily to worship, praise and give God thanks. This is what keeps our mind focused and aligned with Who God is and Who is actually in control when the things of this earth are shaking. Keep trusting, keep worshipping, keep giving Him thanks.
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
 I continue to count my thanks, 
piling up gratitude day by day in my journal.
