A Morning Filled with Gratitude

By Elizabeth Prata

I’m so grateful the Lord gave me His Son, His faith, His mind, His future, His eternity. I am grateful He knitted together a ministry for me to perform that is deeply satisfying. The past two days have been heavy with mental depth and research and writing and prayer. I’m exhausted, but today I have been deeply fulfilled with the recent work.

I’ve been forgiven of my sins, I’ve been washed by His blood, I’ve been given a hope and a future. I’ve been given a ministry. Life is so good.

And then this morning I go out to do some errands. Not a lot, just haircut, return library books, bank, and deliver a bag to the food bank ladies. As I drove up the road and saw the wet recent rain laden vegetation, sparkling flowers, green trees against a blue sky, I was grateful all over again. These are scenes I enjoyed this morning as I went on my little jaunt. The Lord is so good to create beauty, lushness, rain, clouds, sky, …all of it. I hope you have a wonderful day.

I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness;
I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.
(Psalm 7:17)
