From your Pastor;

“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. 
For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.”
                                                        Psalm 100:4,5

      According to David the worship experience is like having an audience with the King of the universe. This worship experience begins at the gates of thanksgiving. This is the gate that leads us into the presence of God. 
       In reality this means when I want to enter the presence of God, while in my quiet time or any other time I should begin it with thanksgiving. Just start off with giving Him thanks for all that comes to your mind.
       In my experience, I find that the good in my life, far out weighs the bad. When I begin giving thanks to God, I find myself in His presence. I find that God is good and things are not as bad as I thought.
      So, no matter how bad things are for you right now; begin the therapy of giving thanks to God. 
Soon you will find yourself in His presence and you too will discover that the good far outweighs the bad. 
I will give thanks to the Lord according to His righteousness and sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.                           
                        Psalm 7:17
