1I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever.
2Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever.
3Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; his greatness is unsearchable.
4One generation shall laud your works to another and shall declare your mighty acts.
5On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
6The might of your awesome deeds shall be proclaimed, and I will declare your greatness.
7They shall celebrate the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
8The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.
10All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and all your faithful shall bless you.
11They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom, and tell of your power,
12to make known to all people your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Today is a new day. For what are you thankful? Today is a new day, what one thing will you bless the Lord for? It is Monday morning, the traditional day of “Ugh” as we begin a new week. It is easy to complain. It’s cold, it is the beginning of a new work week – a time of drudgery for many. For kids, the new school week and if your household was like mine, getting up was difficult this morning.
I can sit here and tell you all the bad stuff about today, all the work, all the frustrations of not getting things done over the weekend, all the problems in the nation and the world – and I’m sure you can do the same.
But what works of the Lord shall we proclaim today? What shall we say of the glory of the Kingdom?
As you begin your day and a new work/school week, consider these questions. Ponder these questions. Take a couple of minutes and just think about these questions. Then make known to all people God’s mighty deeds – or even the little things God has done for you just today.
