Take Time to "Ponder" God's Great Works & Blessings

Do you believe it? 2019 is about to become part of the history books. As 2020 begins, it is often easy to become so focused on the things we are planning for the year, we forget to take time to thank God for His many blessings - big and small - from 2019. So, let's take some time to remember the blessings we experienced throughout the past year. Consider the following . . .
  • Take time to stop and think about each blessing - big and small - which God sent your way. Write them down and focus upon and thank God for the many ways He blessed you.
  • One of the best blessings God gives us is the opportunity to be a blessing to someone else. Take time to seek God and ask Him how He wants to use you to bless someone else. Remember, a simple word of encouragement may seem small to you, but to the one who receives it, it could be one of their biggest blessings of the year.
  • Be ready to share with others - especially your grandchildren - how God has blessed in 2019. It is powerful for them to hear - and see - how God is still working in the lives of real people they know . . . and makes it easier for them to believe God will work in their lives, too!
  • And don't forget to be quick to listen to how God has blessed others - especially your grandchildren. Rejoice with them and thank God together.
Psalm 111:1-4 - Praise the LORD, I will extol the LORD with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are His deeds and His righteousness endures forever. He has caused His wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate.

So, as 2020 begins, make time to intentionally focus upon and "ponder" the great works/blessings God has gifted to you in the past year and praise Him for them, because we do need to remember and He is gracious and compassionate. Plus doing so is a powerful way to hand down the faith - by example.
