Are We Grateful?

Recently, the Lord has showed me how I lack gratefulness. There are countless things Jesus has blessed each of us with.

Psalms 107:8-9: “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness,
and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.”

Four things I’m grateful for today:

  • A Savior Who died on the cross for my sins
  • Rain
  • Many things to do
  • You 

Psalms 107:43: “Whoso is wise, and will observe these things,
even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.”

  5. Today I am Thankful for our Sovereign God and for the promise He has given us in Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” and for you! 🙂

  6. I think that we all struggle at some point with being grateful, dependent on the worries and issues of your lives. We forget to rely on the Lord and His goodness to us, but it is not easy.

    I felt strongly the need to pray for you in the last two weeks Sarah, and I have thanked God for you and your family. I am grateful for you and the ways in which you encourage me in my journey and my struggle.

    Love and blessings, and thanks,

    Cate N.

    Thank you :-).
    Sarah

  7. Today I am grateful for freedom to be myself, a conscience to help me make godly choices in my life, a job to maintain myself independently, and the will to actively navigate change, life’s paths and challenges in a godly way.

  8. I needed this today after a week of having to stand between my kids and their dad to minimize his anger which he takes out on them.

    My list:

    1. The ability to pray directly to Him;
    2. My family who always steps up…no matter what.
    3. My Great Home Improvement List, 2013 ed. It keeps us busy and allows us to get outside ourselves.
    4. My two kids who are truly the best friends I could ask for and the best people I know.

  9. Sarah:
    Graciousness and an attitude of gratitude is something we all struggle with as we accept God’s will in our lives. We are all on this journey together.

    “Climb the cross of Christ and look at the world through his eyes.”

    I am trudging this journey with you.
