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: My loving mother-in-law who watched our two younger children today. I’m also thankful for the 1-on-1 time I was able to spend with our oldest child today.
Work: The completion of the outline for the first chapter in my next book!
Well-being: Forgiving me for my sins. The gospel is true and I must do a better job at reminding myself of this wonderful gift everyday.
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.
