Journal Entry March 22, 2004
Jesus sent ten lepers to the priest. As they were enroute, they all were healed. Only one of them returned to thank Him. This grateful man happened to be a Samaritan—an ethnic outcast.
Do we count ourselves as the grateful person who took the time to back up and say ,”Thank you” to Jesus? Or will we get to heaven’s gate and hear,” I never knew you, you didn’t appear grateful for all the Father did for you”?
What are some things we should be grateful for?
God gives us so much; our only response should be to thank Him!
We all have a lot to thank God for. My list for thanking Him consists of everything from morning naps to having our son live in the same state. I sometimes record as many as six a day. But also, I have days when I have to really think about what I did that day to come up with a couple of them. I have been going through an extended ‘blah’ time but God has been there with me. I feel His presence each day. I am grateful for His presence and I thank Him for that regularly
Do you feel His presence when you have times of being downhearted?
