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 opportunity to see the blessings in difficult family situations. Also, I’m thankful for the opportunity to be loved by my wife and kids despite my glaring imperfections and the opportunity to reciprocate.
Work: Blessing me with the opportunity to study His Word as a major part of my work duties.
Well-being: My wife, who shifts into another gear regarding work inside the house when I’m under the weather and can’t help as much. I’m also thankful for God’s Word that helps me battle discouragement.
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.
