Focusing on Gratitude during November

Gratitude is a good habit to hone.

My friend and fellow blogger Bridget A. Thomas issues her 2022 Gratitude Challenge a few weeks ago. I want to encourage you, my friends, to consider writing a couple of posts focused on gratitude this month.

Gratitude Challenge for 2022 —-Bridget A. Thomas

If you want to end 2022 on a positive note, then perhaps you will consider finding several things you are grateful for each day, through December 31. You can either write them down, or simply say a prayer of thanks. Gratitude is a great way to abide in the Lord as we look around for the blessings He pours into our lives.

As part of participating in Bridget’s Gratitude Challenge, during November, the focus of The Devotional Guy™ will rest on gratitude and thankfulness. It is after all, thanksgiving season, right !?!

What am I grateful and thankful for in 2022?

I am thankful today for many things. I successfully completed the 2022 #Blogtober Challenge which meant posting daily.

I am thankful for the handful of bloggers who rushed to my aid and wrote several excellent guest posts during the challenge.

I am grateful for the opportunity to celebrate my teammates and the incredible work they do every day at our annual benefit gala this coming Friday.

I am grateful for the growth of this blog and the great encouragement that readers and fellow bloggers have provided.

I am grateful for the opportunity to teach a Bible Study beginning this next to last month of 2022.

Most of all, I am grateful for my beautiful T as we celebrated our wedding anniversary in October.

These are just a smidgen of the many things I am grateful for in 2022. God has been extremely kind and good to me and Terri both this year.

Friend, what are you grateful and thankful for in 2022? Please share them in the COMMENTS below, or better yet, join us in the Gratitude Challenge 2022 by publishing a post of God’s blessings in your life that make you grateful and thankful.

Peace and love,

The Devotional Guy™

  1. You did it, Rainer—a post every day in October. Congratulations, brother.

    I started on my gratitude guest post for you last night.

    Have a great rest of the week.

  2. Congratulations on completing the blogtoberfest! And thank you for sharing your gratitude list with us. I am grateful to be working from home for 8 months now. I am grateful for this space where we can connect with friends who are hundreds (or thousands) of miles away, as we grow in our Christian walks. I am grateful for each new day that the Lord wakes me up. And I am grateful for Jesus, who I lean on each day. ✝️

    Hey! My blog is greaterchristianity, how are you doing? I actually saw that you have been liking a few of my posts and I just wanted to say thank you! Is there anything that I could do in order to say thank you?

  5. You’re welcome. Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello. I hope you enjoy reading my content as well. By the way, something is wrong with your web address. It says it’s been deleted, but that’s obviously not the case since I can go to your Greater Christianity blog. I’d reach out to WordPress support.
