Gratitude to the God Who Loves Us in Every Moment

On one occasion, when Elizabeth needed bread, Jesus did her a special favor. Jesus said, “Leave now. You must get bread for your family.” I had forgotten this completely. With deep gratitude, I thanked Him that His attention extended also to our earthly needs. (Elizabeth) (February 14, 1965)

Today’s Readings: “Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?” Then he said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.” (Luke 17)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, how often are we like the lepers who just went on their merry way after being healed. Every day You shower Your Grace on us and we barely notice. Even worse, we grumble, murmur, and complain (Philippians 2) as we go about our day and our duties! We have bad attitudes. Yet You care about us and are concerned for us in every moment of our day- from the small temporal concerns to the big problems we think are so insurmountable Your Eyes never leave us. Lord, help us in each moment to be grateful and to thank You for all things great and small today!
