Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them: he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men. Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.” Psalm 107:19-22

I know that for me, I want my response to God, when he rescues me from trouble (or helps me THROUGH troubling situations) to be thankfulness. I do not ever want to take his love and mercy for granted. And just as a reminder to me to have this attitude, these verses are repeated in Psalm 107:28-32:

“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men. Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the council of the elders.”
