Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.
Psalms 92:1 -2
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
God gives us so much more than we deserve! He offers us grace and mercy and sent His Son to die for our transgressions and He did this know that not all of us would accept His great Gift.
That alone is reason to give thanks, but we have many more reasons to give thanks. Every day we see His blessings--the fact that we ope n our eyes and breathe, the smile of a small child, flowers growing. We can see His goodness all around us even when we are experiencing hardships. Even if we feel the world is falling apart around us or that nothing is going right, God will take care of us! He will set us on high places.
