How do we show gratitude to God for all the blessings he has bestowed upon us?
May I ask you to join me as I pause and reflect for a moment?
Consider this past month. How many times were you hungry? Not the kind of hungry that says it’s almost time to eat, but the hungry that says, I wish I had food but there is none. I’ll just go to sleep and hope something works out in the morning. How many of you found yourselves this month with nothing to wear, not because you hadn’t done the laundry but because your last pieces of clothing were ruined and unwearable? How many of you slept under the stars, not because you chose to go camping for a few days, but because you had no access to a roof to put over your head?
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. Psalm 100:4
My heart and soul will forever give thanks to the Lord.
Dear Heavenly Father I am grateful for the many blessings you have given me. I thank you for life. I thank you for my family, friends, health, shelter, rest, freedom to worship you and my job. I thank you for your grace and mercy. Thank you for your boundless love. Thank you for the forgiveness of sins. I thank you for your indescribable gift, the gift of your Son.
I thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter who is with me. I thank you for your word. Thank you for sickness and pain that draws me closer to you and so much more. But most of all, my thanksgiving overflows because I am a new creation in Christ and am joint-heir with him. Thank you JESUS 🙏🏼🙏🏼.
