Praise the Lord for this is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
I just want to take this time and rejoice in God's goodness towards me, and to thank him from the bottom of my heart for his goodness and mercy. Thank you is something we don’t say much of especially to the Lord, but He’s to be thanked daily throughout the day for His goodness and mercy which is new everyday. My heart is grateful O Lord, and I want to say thank you for everything as i name my blessing one by one. You O Lord are a great, mighty, wonderful, awesome, faithful, miraculous, loving, righteous, holy and a most Sovereign God. You are way more than mere words can accurately portray, but for now please accept my limited knowledge of praise and thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is a form of worship. There are 3 forms of worship: 1. Thanksgiving- we give thanks for what He is or has done. 2. Praise- is our adoration of Him. 3. Worship- is acknowledgement of who He is, and who He is to us.
God's children ought to want to praise Him, and enjoy praising Him. He loved us so fiercely that He gave us a precious and perfect gift; His only beloved son Jesus Christ. We are to take the time to meditate upon God’s goodness towards us, and be very personal with Him. Do not take Him or the things He is doing or has done for granted, for He is a Good and Faithful Father.
When you begin to thank God please let it be with sincerity of heart, and a genuine love for Him, do not let it be out of a sense of duty or obligation. Do it because you truly know Him to be the one you cannot live without; your Source, and the one who loves you unconditionally. Your heart felt tribute and adoration to Him touches His heart, and He will respond mightily to you. God loves our praises , thanksgiving and worship. If you desire to be in His presence and have a closer relationship with Him just start praising, giving thanks and the Holy Spirit will lead you into worship; believe me you will have an awesome experience with your Creator and Father
Go ahead and take some time and say Thank you Lord.
Open your mouth and begin to thank Him even if you don't feel like it, and little by little you will notice a change in your spirit. There will be a sweetness, and a peace in you. His love will bring a feeling of lightness, and it will replace the heaviness of your heart. An overwhelming joy will begin to wash over your soul in such an awesome way, and before you know it you will begin to reach deeper within yourself for more of Him. The Holy Spirit will lead you as you praise and worship God, and you will begin to give Him all you got. By the time you finish you will feel like a brand new person refreshed and rejuvenated. Whatever the situation or circumstances that's been bothering you it might not have changed at that moment in the natural, but trust me ,you changed it in the spiritual; God worked it for your good. Expect changes to unfold in your life.
Praising God; there is nothing like it in all the world. Try it; I guarantee you will love it.
The bible says in Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desire of your heart." What does it mean to delight? Delight is to please God. What pleases God? Our Praise and Worship does..
We can all take a page from King David’s life; he was totally dedicated to God, and he had no problem letting it be known to the world. King David always thank, praise and worship God because he loved the Lord, he knew who God was to him, and he knew the benefits to worshiping God. I want to be more like David, because he was a man after God’s own heart. He delighted in God and God delighted in him; how awesome is that.
King David has a entire book dedicated to God in the bible; it is the book of Psalms. These psalms brings comfort, peace, and joy to our hearts. Can you imagine what it does to God's heart?
My Heart Felt Thanks
I am going to take this opportunity to say "Thank you Lord" for all that you have done for me from before I was born until this present day.
Thank you Lord for I was wonderful and fearfully made in your imagine. You took the time to think about who I was going to be, and you made me unique as unto yourself. You put purpose in my life.
Thank you Lord for placing me into the family that you did, although they were not ideal it was were I needed to be to become the person you wanted me to be.
Thank you Lord for the place of my birth because it’s a place of beauty.
Thank you Lord for my mind, body, and spirit. You help me everyday to learn and grow.
Thank you Lord for the days of my youth. When I was lonely, sad, and hurt, you were always there for me. When I didn’t understand nor knew right from wrong you were there for me to guide me through every lonely and hurtful moment, and you comforted me with your arms of love.
Thank you Lord for listening to my heart’s cry, and for drying my tears, you were always there for me when others failed me.
Thank you Lord for my childhood education. You helped me to learn when my mind was stubborn, and you helped me to triumph over many difficult moments in learning which was challenging to me.
Thank you Lord for taking me through my teenage years which was complicated and fill with turmoil, I struggled to find myself and where I belonged, but yet again you were there to helped me. You helped me to sift through all the garbage that infiltrated my mind, and you took me out of many, many, many troubled waters.
Thank you Lord for taking me through young adulthood where many pressures were added in my life, I were not properly equipped nor prepared to handle life.
Thank you Lord for my children. Although I had them young you helped me to be a good mother, and through all my mistakes and faults you did not abandoned me nor my children. I love you Lord!
Thank you Lord for bringing me into adulthood. It was not an easy journey but I am learning to be just a little more wiser. Although things was still rough you helped me to come to grips with life’s humongous and overwhelming problems, and you brought me out stronger and more secure.
Thank you Lord for I am now half way through life. It's new challenges that I face but your Grace takes me through. Your mighty hands is on my life, and I know I have the victory in you. Psalm 92:4 " For thou Lord has made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thine hand."
Thank you Lord for today as I humble myself and yield to your Holy Spirit. As you fine tune my spiritual ears I am listening to hear from you, to receive direction as to your plans for me so I may carry them out.
Thank you Lord for the prayer ministry you entrusted me with to intercede on behalf of our children around the nation.
Thank you Lord for the bright future you have ahead for me, and for the surprises you are bringing forth in my life.
Thank you Lord for new beginnings, restoration, revision, refreshment, and healing.
Thank you Lord for all your blessings that you gave to me, that you have for me right now, and for the blessings that you will be giving me in the future.
If you can’t find a specific reason to thank God, just thank Him for who He is.

CS Cart Review on March 07, 2013:
The information did not help me with anything and I wouldn’t recommend this work to any one due to how poorly written it is.
Ronald E Franklin from Mechanicsburg, PA on March 02, 2013:
Thanks for an encouraging hub. Sometimes you just need to be brought back to that place of praise, and that's what happens here. Thanks especially for featuring the Love Alive IV video. I well remember how in our choir we loved singing songs from Love Alive I and II. I hadn't known there was an IV and presumably a III!
Goddy on March 02, 2013:

Christine from Michigan on March 06, 2011:
Yes, we take so many of the blessings God gives us for granted. I would like to say thank you God for the internet. It is the most wonderful evangelism tool available in out world today. We can reach out to many people who haven't been exposed to the light of the Gospel so that the Holy Spirit can fill their hearts with His love. Great hub jagandelight!
