I think that many times we let what should be extremely special to us—things we should be extremely grateful for—become too commonplace. Check out how a well known Christian author described losing your thankfulness.
Several years ago, I was “prayer murmuring” (praying but kind of murmuring at the same time), and I said, “Lord, why don’t I have those exciting, special things happen in my life like I used to when I first started to know You?” I’ll never forget what the Lord spoke to my heart so clearly. He said, “I still do the same things all the time, it’s just that you’ve gotten used to it.” Ouch!
I believe that if we’ll stay amazed at the things God is doing in our lives—even the little things—we’ll never be without hope. I encourage you to realize what you have, be thankful, and decide to live amazed…jaw-dropping, wide-eyed, “Wow! That was God!” amazed.
Prayer of Thanks: I am grateful that You are always doing special things in my life, Lord, and I pray that I will recognize them and be generous in my praise and gratitude. Help me to live amazed!
