Remembering to Praise

Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice.

~Luke 17:15

How often are we healed by God? How often are we blessed by God in our lives? How often do we miss the mark when it comes to giving thanks?

In this story from Luke, Jesus has healed ten lepers, and one of the ten – a Samaritan – comes back to Jesus to praise God for the healing that happened. Only one out of ten. Jesus is shocked by this, but sometimes I wonder if that isn’t the norm?

I myself forget sometimes to give thanks to God for all that I have received, but even if I forget, if I keep walking, God is doing so much in my life. God is continuing to forgive me when I fail, continuing to heal me when I am hurt, and continuing to bless me with gifts that I may not even be able to recognize.

How has God healed you? How has God blessed you? How have you praised God for the God’s love and light in your life today?
