God is pouring out his blessings on us every day. Most of us meander through life without really noticing all of the good things given to us by our Heavenly Father. Sometimes, when we are doing well, we begin to think that the good things that we have come to us because of our own efforts. In those good times we must force ourselves to look back on every gift we have and remember that we have them only because of the great mercy and love of God, whose love washes over us like a bountiful rain.
A bountiful rain you showered down, O God, upon your inheritance;
you restored the land when it languished;
Your flock settled in it;
in your goodness, O God, you provided it for the needy.
Blessed day by day be the Lord,
who bears our burdens; God, who is our salvation.
God is a saving God for us;
the LORD, my Lord, controls the passageways of death.
Take time today to make an inventory of all of the loving gifts you have received and thank God for his generous love.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love endures forever!
