Tonight I decided to read Psalm 100 and I noticed the heading read “A psalm. For giving grateful praise.” That really stuck out to me. I wanted to flip to something else. I had been thinking about posting a Psalm but it seemed like overkill to post about gratitude again. I don’t want to come off as fake. My day wasn’t all good; I had some stressful moments. It wasn’t a bad day. It was a day. However, as I read through the Psalm, I was reminded that even a day has many wonderful moments I can be grateful for. Today I am grateful for Mrs. Hassi who is organizing my office. I am grateful that I have an awesome cousin named Charlie who turned 8 and that I got to be part of his party, even if I arrived late. I am grateful for my wonderful extended family!
My day was a ‘meh’ day until I started to think of things to be grateful for. I may have to make this chapter a nightly reading!
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
