Wonderful Things

By Infrogmation of New Orleans (Photo by Infrogmation) [GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html)
I want to thank you Lord
for all the wonderful things
that you do,
for your love,
your care,
your hope,
your presence with me,
the splendour of your creation
and your presence
in the world.

I want to thank you
for all that you are,
for you majesty
and power,
your truth
and justice,
and your eternity.

It is so easy to moan
and grumble,
to complain
and winge,
but today
I step back
and I bring my thanks
and praise
to you.

Psalm 111

Psalm 111 (CEV)

Praise the Lord for All He Has Done

111 Shout praises to the Lord!
    With all my heart
I will thank the Lord
    when his people meet.
The Lord has done
    many wonderful things!
Everyone who is pleased
with God’s marvelous deeds
    will keep them in mind.
Everything the Lord does
    is glorious and majestic,
    and his power to bring justice
    will never end.

The Lord God is famous
for his wonderful deeds,
    and he is kind and merciful.
He gives food to his worshipers
    and always keeps his agreement
    with them.
He has shown his mighty power
    to his people
    and has given them the lands
    of other nations.

God is always honest and fair,
    and his laws can be trusted.
    They are true and right
    and will stand forever.
God rescued his people,
    and he will never break
his agreement with them.
    He is fearsome and holy.

10 Respect and obey the Lord!
This is the first step
    to wisdom and good sense.
    God will always be respected

Don’t Forget God

Do we remember to thank God for all the things he’s done?  Do we get used to them, take them for granted, or maybe not even notice them?  The simple things, the ordinary things, the things we rely on…?  Do we give God respect for who and what he is?
