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: The fun time that we had with our children yesterday…riding bikes and pulling them in a wagon around our neighborhood. These are the times that we must cherish…when they are small and simple gestures go a long way. Thank you, Lord.
Work: The fruitful writing and copy editing sessions that I’ve had lately. The Lord has helped me overcome the feeling of “I don’t feel like it” and has given me strength to work and serve.
Well-being: My wife starting to feel better day-by-day. She has a cold that’s been a nuisance this week. We believe our son has the same cold. Please pray for the Crafts.
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.
