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).
I’m thankful to God for…
Family: The time spent with our Craft family and church family. I really enjoyed doing some yard work with our 2-year old son (armadillo holes are really annoying and dangerous).
Work: The opportunity to review and suggest edits for a prominent pastor’s upcoming book.
Well-being: Today’s sermon from 2 Timothy 2:8-13. For no matter how much suffering and ridicule that we endure, the Word of God is not bound! Today’s sermon inspired me to keep pressing on with sharing the gospel (and supporting missionaries who take the gospel to foreign lands).
These are the three things for which I’m thankful today.
I pray that my journal will inspire you to express thankfulness daily to God.
