It’s pre-Friday and the weekend is within reach. As you get ready to call it a night, what are you grateful for as you look back at the last few days?
Being thankful for those things that go right in our life help us deal with the things that go a little haywire. We all have things happen that don’t please us or go our way. We can spend all our energy on them or we can shift our focus to what’s gone right in our life.
Not sure what you are grateful for in your life?
Grab a notepad and a pen. Sit down and list a couple of things. Maybe it was the morning coffee you enjoyed seemingly a century ago. It doesn’t have to be anything big or complicated. Keep it simple.
Notepad and pen to archaic for you? Fine. There are plenty of note-taking apps that you can download on your smartphone. Choose one and list the things that make you grateful. People? Pets? A promotion? Cleaning out that cabinet drawer that’s been begging you to organize it?
You woke up today. You have a roof over your head, food to eat, and coffee to drink. You showered with clean water and slept in a warm bed. You have people you love in your life who love you back. You drove to work today in your own car. You earned money. You have money to pay bills.
There are lots to give thanks to God for…
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your love, watch-care, and provision. You are so good to me. I am thankful for the love in my life and the roof over my head. Thank you for loving me and taking care of me. Amen.
