Verse of the Day
For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer. 1 Timothy 4:4-5
I read about a young married couple, who were God fearing Christians, they were expecting baby. When the child was born, it was a special child. The couple was very dejected, the asked God “Why us”. Slowly and gradually, they accepted the child and started working how to make child a useful part of society. Raising a special child made that family more mature, understanding, loving and compassionate. Today they consider child as a gift and consider the special child a rope that has tied the family closely together.
In our lives God moves in a strange way, sometimes things happen that are against our expectations. We get dejected and wonder why it happened to us. But we must remember, God loves us and he gives us everything that is good for us, Satan put doubt in our minds and try to take us away from God. If we accept everything that God provides us with a thankful heart, our lives will be further blessed with more good things.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4
Heavenly Father, we thank you for all your blessings, for the life You have given us, for family, neighbors and community and for all the necessities of life that you provide us. O Lord, bless us with a grateful heart so that we can be thankful for all the things that you have provided us. We know Satan sow the seeds of discontentment, greed, resentment and annoyance in our life, but it is strength of your powerful words written in Holy Bible and Your Holy Spirit that keeps safe from it. O Lord fill our lives with your everlasting Contentment. In Jesus name accept our prayers. Amen
