There are times in my life when I pause and try to think back on what Jesus has done for me. It’s easy to go directly to the cross and thank God for making a way for me to be in a relationship with Him through the sacrifice of Jesus. I am so thankful for this truth, but oftentimes when I’m reflecting on what Jesus has done for me, I’m usually trying to think of the more seemingly minor everyday things that I quickly forget about and never stop to give Him thanks!

After Jesus rises from the dead, He appears to the disciples three times. In John chapter 21, we see Jesus meeting the disciples as they are fishing. He directs them where to cast their nets and then brings them back to shore for a meal.

John 21:25 is the last verse of the book of John, and it has always been one of my favorites. It says,

Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written.

If we tried to write down everything that Jesus has done, “the whole world could not contain the books.” How crazy is that! Now think of the things he’s done in your life.

I’m sitting in my house enjoying a warm breeze wafting through the open windows while drinking tea and eating a little snack. In these moments, I try to remember that God provides all things for me; a safe place to live, air to breathe, nourishing foods to enjoy and fuel my body, and the list goes on and on!

Today, I encourage you to take some time to thank God for the beautiful pieces of life that He gives.

Prayer: Father, thank You for Your provision. Thank You for providing a way for our salvation and supplying our daily needs. Please help us never forget the things you have done in our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
