Do you thank God for the things that could have gone wrong, but didn’t? Or could have been worse, but weren’t.
I tend to thank Him for the things that go well. I thank Him for the blessings, the healings, the times He rescues my bank account from the 97 cents balance.
But to thank Him for all of the infinite possibilities of things that could have gone wrong but didn’t would take a lifetime and a heck of an imagination. Which He deserves.
As a creative exercise, take 5 minutes to brainstorm all of the things that God protected you from since you woke this morning.
I usually like a strong or cute ending to these posts, but I struggled with this one which I started last night. Then I opened my Bible app this morning and the verse of the day was from Psalm 91:1, “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” I decided to open and read the full chapter.
That’s my ending. Take another 90 seconds to read it.
