" I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart. I will tell all the miracles you have done.”
With Thanksgiving only days away, everyone is talking about how thankful they are and what they have been thankful for each day. It still amazes me that Facebook blows up each year around this time with what people are thankful for but throughout the rest of the year you hear or see little of their thanksgivings. I have said that God is in the business of daily blessing us not bringing on pain and hurt, we know who that comes from. With all His blessings and the choice Jesus made at the cross, we should have nothing more than a heart full of gratitude. Even in our bad days or times of low, we should be thankful God is with us taking care of us and Jesus is busy readying heaven for us.
The more we find ways to be thankful the more we learn to appreciate and love Jesus. The more the world fades the brighter God becomes. As the year 2018 quickly wraps up as we go into the last holidays let's try something new. Instead of just being thankful this time of year let's spend the next 30 days finding ways to be grateful and see how God can and will brighten our days and lift our spirits. Grab a pen and your calendar for the next month or something you can hang on your fridge. For the next 30 days lets all have an attitude of gratitude. I am writing a list for each day of something we can be grateful for. When you see it each day simply say, “Thank you Jesus for…” Go ahead and share with your friends on social media or as you talk with them and spread God's blessings and joy. Let's put the hustle and bustle and the chaos of the seasons behind us and simple have an Attitude of Gratitude.
