He blesses us with the sounds of the roaring oceans and the fragrance from the spring rains. He romances us with spectacular sunsets and comforts us in the warmth of His sun. As the morning sun peeks over the horizon, He greets us with colorful reminders of His extravagant love. Awesome is this God we serve, awesome is His love!
No matter where we go, He walks with us flooding our lives with bountiful blessings. Surely, His goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives!
Take a few minutes and ask the Holy Spirit to show you the ways in which you are blessed. Begin to write down all the things He reveals to you. By the time He is finished, you will have a new song of rejoicing to sing to the Lord.
