The Magnet of a Thankful Heart

During a time of devastation and distress, the prophet Jeremiah wrote these words:

This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope.  The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:21-23).

This is a indeed a challenging time for all of us.  But like Jeremiah, we have reason for hope.  Are you seeing God’s goodness and faithful to you?  

Over a century ago, one believer gave this insight:  “If one should give me a dish of sand, and tell me there were particles of iron in it, I might look for them with my eyes, and search for them with my clumsy fingers, and be unable to detect them; but let me take a magnet and sweep through it, and how would it draw to itself the almost invisible particles, by the mere power of attraction!  The unthankful heart, like my finger in the sand, discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day, and as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find in every hour some heavenly blessings; only the iron in God’s sand is gold.”

May our eyes be increasingly opened to seeing God’s blessings because of our grateful hearts.

Looking forward,

Pastor Ron Prosise
