And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. – Colossians 3:17
“Give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks to the Holy one, give thanks…”
That was the first song that came up in church yesterday morning. As I heard the song, there was a rush of memories in my head. I was like what am I grateful for? How often do I even say I’m grateful? How do I show it?
I would say I’m grateful for everything. What about the terrible things?
It is written,
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)
It makes so much sense.
Find some quiet time to pray and thank God, read Scripture out-loud (top of your voice kinda loud), get a heart check up and renew it with one that is filled with peace and joy!
You can also begin with a gratitude jar. Basically it’s a jar (or basket or container or can) that you fill with words, items, notes, thoughts, and scribbles about something that you are thankful or grateful for.
It’s like a piggy bank only that money’s not in it. You can put things in everyday or week or month.
It’s all ao you remind yourself that you’re amazing and everyone is amazing. You end up smiling even when you didn’t want to and you see the greater good in this world.
Have a blessed week!
