A day late, I know, but it’s been a busy week filled with time spent with family and friends. My heart is just thankful for this time and I wanted to reach to y’all and share how I start my mornings.
Everyday I start my prayer off in thanksgiving to the Lord. As humans, we are prone to covetousness. Sometimes we tend to focus on what we don’t have rather than what we do have, but could you imagine only having the things that you have thanked God for? When we start thanking God for the things we usually take for granted, our perspective changes. We realize that we could not even exist without the merciful blessings of God.
“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
We are to be thankful not only for the things we like, but for the circumstances we don’t like. We can have thankful hearts toward God even when we do not feel thankful for the circumstance. We cannot adequately praise and worship God without also being thankful.
Be thankful today and everyday.
Have a great weekend,
