Multitude Monday - Psalm 50

It's another beautiful Monday morning.  Even though life is stressful, I'm finding that keeping thankfulness before more keeps things in perspective. 

As I write this, the kids are sitting quietly at their desks, working on their school work.  The dog is sleeping under my desk.  The bird is chirping away with the birds outside.  And the spring sun is shining.  Glorious day!

Psalm 50:14-15, 23 (NLT)

Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High.  Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.

But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me.  If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.

Here is this week's list of the 1000 Gifts:  (177-189)

riding my bike with Mark in the park

music being made from the heart of my kids

the blooms of the flowers in my yard

HUGE batch of back-yard bananas, ready to eat

praying together

God's faithfulness in the little things, too

courage to play my guitar in worship

health insurance when we need it

long prayed for prodigal, back in fellowship

peace that endures through turbulent times

constant reminders of His care

  1. I, too, have been reminded lately that it's times such as these that demand praise to regain and keep my focus. It gives "sacrifice of praise" fresh meaning.

    Keep praising and giving thanks. Not only will it get you through moment to moment focused on Him, it encourages others (such as myself) to do the same. Thank You!
