Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: Psalms Mixtape Sermon Title: I Wanna Say Thank You
Delivered On: July 30, 2017
Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits ([bible]Psalm 103:1-2[/bible])
Read through [bible]Psalm 103[/bible] and thank God for His forgiveness, healing, redemption, patience, compassion, grace, mercy, and provision specifically as it applies to your life.
Flip the Script - This week, every time you feel frustrated by your circumstances, make a deliberate effort to stop and thank God for a blessing in your life. For example, if you get a flat tire, stop and thank God you have a car.
