Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. - 1 Chr 16:34 Click To Tweet

Happy Monday!

Welcome to my daily gratitude journal. Everyday I will share one thing for which I’m thankful in each of the areas of family, work, and well-being.

Every day, every moment, and every experience (even the “bad” ones) present opportunities for thankfulness. But to whom are we to express thankfulness? God, our Heavenly Father, must be the object of our thankfulness. All good things come from Him (Jas 1:17); and He works all things (once again, including the “bad” things) together for the good for those who love Him (Rom 8:28).

Today, I’m thankful to God for…

Family: A blessed and busy weekend of basketball games, birthday parties, church, choir practice, and more! My wife and I will look back on these busy days with our little ones and really miss them. Sometimes it’s hard to be thankful while you’re in the middle of the hustle and bustle… so it’s worth our while to just stop when we have a moment and appreciate the moment!

Work: How well Nao Media’s stock portfolio is performing. I’m really confident in the companies we’ve invested in, but I also know that I have a lot to learn as an investor. Please pray that I continue to educate myself on investing and that I do it to glorify God ultimately!

Well-being: A good short workout this morning. I’m also thankful that we as followers of Jesus Christ have been blessed with the privilege of prayer. God hears our prayers! Isn’t that amazing? Thank you, Jesus.

These are the three things for which I’m thankful today.

I pray that my journal will inspire you to express gratitude daily to God.
