Why Does God Love Me? {Bible Reading Plan Day 3}


Psalm 136:1 {NIV}

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.


We are to give thanks to the Lord for all of His blessings and for His never ending love.


The other day as I was leaving the post office, I saw a woman trying to balance a giant box and open the door at the same time so I quickly moved to the side, opened the door and held it for her and she brushed past me without so much as a nod. I stood there a minute, door still wide open… Seriously, she couldn’t say “thank you”? What has happened to common courtesy?

As I read today’s verse, I wondered how many times I’ve left God just standing there with the door open? How many times have I failed to acknowledge the many gifts He has given to me?


Father, I just want to thank you for all that you’ve done for me. I want to thank you for my life, my health and my strength. I want to thank you for the family and friends that you’ve given to me. I want to thank you for the daily reminders of your enduring love.  Amen.
