This week we turn to Isaiah and a short passage that celebrates how God treats his people. I’m going to be using The Message paraphrase of the Bible as I believe it really captures the spirit of Old Testament poetry well.

Isaiah 63:7 MSG
I’ll make a list of God’s gracious dealings, all the things God has done that need praising…

What a wonderful way to start the week! So often our culture and we with it focus on the negative – our problems and criticisms. This can lead us to overlook all that is good. Getting in the habit of starting the day by celebrating the good things in life, all that God gives and does around us, keeps our focus on him and lifts the spirits. We are truly blessed, if only we look around and see.

Go make a list! Perhaps you could also share some of those things with others too?
