“Sometimes you have to stop what you’re doing and really take everything in. Life can be hectic and it can be stressful, filled with anxiety, anger, sadness and fear. Allow yourself to slow down, take even just a few minutes out of your day to tilt your head back and close your eyes. Just breathe everything in…the sun rising and shining, the smell of the great outdoors, the warmth and steam of a cup of coffee in hand, your heartbeat, the cozy clothes on your body, the love from a family member or friend, and then, Thank God for His Blessings, of which there are many.
O Lord my God, thank you that you are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. The Bible says that you are a Good Father who gives us good gifts. When I wake every morning may I be filled with thanksgiving for the gift of another day. When I lie down to sleep may I respond in gratitude to the many blessings you have given me each day. May I grow in the grace and knowledge of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To you be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
I Am Thankful and Grateful for each little miracle, like watching the birds in my yard 🙏
Heavenly Father, sometimes, ok a lot if times, I tend to take my miracles for granted, or I take for granted You already know that I am grateful, so I don’t express my gratitude as often as I should. Whatever my reasons, today, this moment, I pray to you on fallen knees, how Grateful I Am. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (NKJV)
Romans 14:6a, “Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord.” (NIV)
1 Chronicles 16:34, “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” (NIV)
As a new day arises fresh and anew, so is my gratitude renewed. 🙏
“Give thanks to the Lord of lords: to him who alone does great wonders, who by his understanding made the heavens, who spread out the earth upon the waters, who made the great lights – the sun to govern the day, the moon and stars to govern the night…” (Psalm 136:3-9).
Whenever I have a question (when don’t I?) Or I just need a place to ‘be’ I take myself outside (Gods House) It’s where I feel closest to Him. (always) I sit in silence (me silent?!) Only to be serenaded by the song and chirps of my backyard cardinals. (Bird music) And I pray. And I heal. And I praise Him for this life of mine. That only He can give me. I Am Thankful And I Am Grateful
