The Last Sunday

Today or tomorrow, depending on when you read this blog, is the last Sunday of 2018.  Here are a few things that I would like for you to do right now.

Psalm 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,

I want you to stop and remember this previous year.  Now if you are like most people you recall every lousy thing that happened.  It's human nature to do that.  But stop yourself and do what this Pinterest post says.  "Count your blessings, not your stressing."

I want you to remember every good thing about 2018.  Write them down if you have to, but remember it all.  Don't leave even the smallest detail out.  

This exercise challenges our tendency to be negative.  It also combats the notion that God either doesn't care about us or that we somehow don't deserve His grace and mercy.  

There is so much to be grateful for.  Take the time to give thanks. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, thank you for all you've done for me in 2018.  AMEN
