the many moments of praise

A simple but profound thought from my devotional this morning:

"Long before the discovery of penicillin, other silent killers were at work saving lives by destroying bacteria These silent killers are white blood cells. These hard workers are God's way of protecting us from disease. No one knows how many invasions they have stopped or how many lives they have saved.  They receive little recognition for all the good they do.

The Lord gets similar treatment.  He often gets blamed when something goes wrong, but He seldom gets credit for all the things that go right.  Every day people get up, get dressed, drive or work or school or the grocery store, and return safely to their families.  No one knows how many times God has protected us from harm.  But when there is a tragedy, we ask, "Where was God?"" ~ Julie Ackerman Link

A simple but profound thought that does truly put life in perspective.  How praiseworthy and thankful are we as we consider God's amazing care for us on a moment by moment basis?  What a reminder of how much grace and mercy is ours each day as He loves, protects, and daily works in our lives!  To God be the glory for the great things HE has done!

May your eyes be opened to all the praiseworthy things that are abounding around you on this day!
