CULTIVATE A HEART OF GRATITUDE

REMEMBER

1 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; 3 Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; 4 Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with loving kindness and compassion; 5 Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. -PSALM 103:1-5, NASB I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had a problem with forgetting things. Really important things. One time, I forgot our wedding anniversary. One time. It’s a funny thing about humanity. We tend to remember the bad things and forget the good. David had that same tendency. So, he wrote a song to remind himself of all the great things God has done for him—and for us. It’s actually a conversation with himself about what he needs to remember. Not a bad idea! When is the last time you had a conversation with yourself to be reminded of all God has done for you? Cultivating a grateful heart begins with remembering. Make a list of all you have to be grateful for. David’s list in Psalm 103 is a great place to begin.

PRAYER

God, please grow and cultivate a heart of gratitude in me. You’ve been so good. Help me to remember all you have done. I want to live each day with a grateful heart. LARRY HARRISON Pastor of Worship Ministries lharrison@crossings.church
