Our scripture text encourages us to give thanks for everything; this includes the trials and afflictions we may have encountered this year, and yes, there have been many, but through it all, we have made it through. Thank God for His love, grace, and mercy.
We are still suffering from this pandemic-Covid19, and there appears to be no end in sight. Even despite the lingering effects of the Covid19, we are always blessed because God has blessed us with another day, and it is an opportunity to praise His holy name. It is another opportunity to tell the Lord, I thank You because You didn’t have to wake me this morning, but You did, and I thank You.
When we look back over our lives, reflecting on our troubles, we will find that our blessings outweigh our problems. That is praiseworthy; then we can say like the Psalmist in Psalm 150 God by saying:
Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.
4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high-sounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
