Recently, I read an article where the author told of a gratitude list she had made where it almost felt like a “to-do list” or a “grocery list” and it resonated with me. The word “entitled” came to my thought; a word that I dislike and I began to wonder if that was how I somehow felt about God. Did I really appreciate God with all my heart or did I take Him for granted? Immediately, Psalms 9:1,2 came to mind where it states, “I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.”
Yes, I will pray with those two verses to keep my gratitude fresh and joyous!
