 “But I cry to you for help, Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you.” –Psalm 88:13

There are often times throughout the day where we forget to praise Jesus. We tend to take the little things for granted.


Here are some little things to be reminded of and to be thankful to praise him for in the morning.

Thank Him for Another Day

When you open your eyes in the morning, thank God for the opportunity to live another day. Thank him for the things that you have to do during the day. Notice the sun shining through the curtains and the birds chirping and thank him for the opportunity to experience another beautiful day.

Be Thankful for the Little Things

Thank him for allowing you to wake up this morning and giving you the things that you have. Thank him for your bed and a roof over your head. Thank him for the family that you get to wake up to and the friends you get to be with during the day. Thank him for your education or your job. He has given us so many things that we take for granted that we should be thankful for.

Without Him We Wouldn’t Be Given Life

He is our great creator, the one who gave us life. He created us out of dust and gave us lungs and air to breathe. He easily could take our lives away as quickly as he created them. Without him, we would not exist, we would not get to experience the lives that we live.

Make the most of the life you have and live your dreams and praise Jesus every moment possible, when times are tough and you do not know what to do, ask him for help and he will hear you and he will guide you. He is deserving of all praise, thank him for waking you up this morning.
