Try Giving Thanks

“I had recently received bad news. Deep shadows of darkness seemed to cover my soul. I prayed but the darkness remained. Suddenly, one day, as I entered a friend’s home, I noticed these words: ‘Try giving thanks.’ I did, and in a moment every shadow was gone.”*

It is good to give thanks to the Lord (Psalm 92:1).

*adapted from L.B. Cowman who cited Henry B. Frost in Streams in the Desert, p. 299.

 

A Reason for Gratitude

“All God’s acts are done in perfect wisdom, first for His own glory, and then for the highest good of the greatest number for the longest time.”*

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High (Psalm 92:1).
