Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, Psalm 103:1-2 ESV

We have so much to be thankful for. Counting our blessings is one way to be mindful of God’s goodness to each of us. His grace, His unmerited favor and love encircle our lives that result in so many blessings. The powerful lens of gratitude is an opportunity to look at our situations with a new revelation on a daily basis. He is a great God and continues to make a way for us even in the darkest hour and most difficult situations. I remember during testimony service, the Saints would share their thanks for portions of health, life and strength, for having a mind to serve God and the gift of salvation and being filled with the Holy Ghost. The recitation was often repetitive but reflecting on it now, I realize its importance. We can thank God for His blessings each day. It is impossible to enumerate them all but taking the time each day to reflect on His goodness and giving the Lord praise strengthens our journey. Creating a gratitude journal is a wonderful way of capturing the Lord’s blessings. Writing daily at least three things that you are thankful for establishes a pattern of reflection and our response of gratitude to God for His goodness. He is good. He is worthy. And we are thankful. Bless His Holy Name.

O my soul, bless GOD. From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless GOD, don’t forget a single blessing! Psalm 103:1-2 MSG
