How often do we start off the day in a grumpy mood, not looking forward to what lies ahead?

What if we started each morning thanking God for his mercy and the great love he has for us?

The more we dwell upon the mercy of God, the more grateful our heart will be, seeing everything through his merciful gaze.

The 19th-century book The Catholic Monitor reflects on this reality.

The mercy of God is an unfailing source of the richest blessings not only for this life, but for that which is to come. They are new every morning. The sleep that refreshes us, the light that cheers us, the food that nourishes us, and all the comforts of life are from God. Him we should acknowledge and praise in each … What a rich source of encouragement and comfort … Whatever occurs in the course of providence, still God is kind and faithful.

God is always faithful and gives us so many blessings, no matter how sinful we might be. He lavishes his love upon us every day, even when we are ungrateful!

May we begin each day thanking God for his mercy and for his countless blessings that he continually gives to us.
