God in My Soul

Are we being grateful and thankful to God throughout our day?


Psalm 146:2

The Psalmist asks their soul to praise God. Their innermost being to be grateful to God. This speaks to having God at the center of ourselves. First God, then everything else.

When we wake up in the morning, we thank God for getting us up. When we go to eat we thank God for the food. When we realize the gifts we are given, small and large, we thank God. Before we go to bed we thank God.

This is a life centered on God. Even in our struggles we thank God for the day he will deliver us from them and then thank God for seeing us through them. To praise God in every moment and all our lives.

Is this how we are operating today? Are we taking time throughout our day to at least acknowledge God for one minute? One second? We can say we believe in God but are our actions showing it?

Let us add one additional moment in our day to cultivate this inner soul praise of God. If we haven’t before can we try a midday prayer? A sign of the cross when we face a challenge today? Or maybe taking a break from our work and just reciting Psalm 146:2.
