The Sweet Aroma of Gratitude

“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is deepest within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits–Who forgives every one of your iniquities, Who heals each one of your diseases. Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption. Who beautifies, dignifies and crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercy; Who satisfies your mouth with good so that your youth, is renewed like the eagles.” (Psalm 103:1-5)

*******************************************************************************

So often we go through our lives not even thinking about how really blessed we are to have God in our lives. We take for granted the goodness of God and all the unseen blessings He pours out on us every day.

How often has God sent an angel to keep people out of harm’s way? How many times have we dodged the proverbial bullet? How often does money show up just in the nick of time? How often do we quickly recover from hurts? Yes, He is a good, good Father. He Fathers us unselfishly and with all His heart.

The ten lepers that Jesus healed, only one came back to thank Him. How that must have blessed Him! Gratitude has a sweet aroma to God. A thankful heart blesses Him.

Take a moment and think back over the past week, and years and say a heartfelt “thank You Lord” for all He has done in your life. Be grateful for His presence in your life. Believe me, it is as precious to you as the sweet aroma of your gratitude is to Him.

Blessings everyone…
