If you are in a season of life where you are struggling to be thankful, you are not alone. Let’s be honest. Some days it is an effort to take notice of our blessings. When I get like that, my go-to is to ask the Lord to change my heart and attitude.

In the Colossians, 3:15, Paul tells us we are to let Christ’s peace rule our hearts and be thankful. Not being grateful is a heart issue, not circumstantial. Making choices that promote peace in our souls and communities, is what God calls us to do. With our hearts full of Christ and His peace, being thankful becomes our behavior.

See how your attitude and heart changes after you thank God for all He is and does.

Thank you, Lord,

for Your healing

for Your love

for Your mercy and Your grace

for Your strength

for Your protection

for Your peace

for Your Word

for Your rest

for Your hope and Your promises

for Your timing

for Your presence

for Your forgiveness

for Your miracles

for building my character

for teaching me Patience

for showing me what I had become and who I’m meant to be

for creating in me something new

for guiding my every step

for increasing my FAITH

for blessing me far more than I deserve

for my storm

for fighting my battles

for the mountains You have moved

for carrying me through

for everything that happens to me TODAY

for being ALL I need!

My prayer for you today is that you spend some time in His presence with a thankful heart! You will be amazed at the changes you will see in your heart and your life when you tell Him, Thank you!
