I’ve been convicted for a while now that I’m not spending time each day in awareness of all the many things that I should be thankful for. I’m not thanking God for the many blessings He has given me and for the many ways He’s working on my behalf. I decided that for the next 30 days, I’m going to spend time each day acknowledging and thanking God for all the good things in my life. I know some of my friends do an exercise like this leading up to Thanksgiving, but why wait until then when it’s definitely something I need to work on now? I realized after deciding to do this that these 30 days will take me right up to my 30th Birthday! I hadn’t planned it that way, but I definitely don’t think it’s a coincidence that I will enter into my next year of life having spent time in deep gratitude for where the Lord has me now!
So each Wednesday for the next few weeks I will post my list from the past 7 days of things that I was grateful for each day. I hope that this exercise in my life will encourage you into thanksgiving and gratefulness for what God has done and is doing in your life. I would love to hear in the comments if you are taking this challenge right along with me!
