Psalm 100, A Psalm of Thanksgiving
There was a blind girl who hated herself because of her blindness. She also resented everyone else except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She said that if she could ever see the world, she would marry him.
One day, someone donated their eyes so she could see. Then her boyfriend asked her to marry him. She was shocked when she saw that he was blind too and not only refused his proposal, but broke up with him. As he walked away, he simply said, “Just take care of my eyes, dear.”
This is how the human brain changes when our status changes. Few remember what life was like before and fewer remember who to thank for always being there when times were painfully unbearable.
Thank the Lord everyday for the gifts you’ve been given. Your life is His gift to you. Live it, enjoy it, celebrate it, and fulfill it.
