If You're Happy and You Know It...

Ever noticed how when everything is going your way, you tend to forget about God? But when the world is crashing down and everything in your life is left in crumbles, that is when you turn to Him? Yeah, that is the case in a LOT of Christians today. We ask God for help, healing, and miracles but we don't even take time to thank Him for the things He has given us. God sent Jesus, His son, to die for OUR sins and yet we only turn to Him when we want something? Why are we so selfish and greedy? We are humans. But that's not an excuse. Thanking God for His love is not for His sake, but for ours. It is a reminder of how amazing He is and keeps us from forgetting what He has done for us.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. -James 1:17

I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
-Psalm 34:1

Next time things are going your way, don't forget to thank the One that is responsible for every good thing!
