Daily Gratitude Journal

Happy Sunday!

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 great time we had with our friends from church (The Wrights and The Hydes) after church today. Zoe’s Kitchen and Schlotzsky’s for the win!

Work: How some of my work (the book I’m working on) is leading to me teaching a Sunday school class on the subject at church!

Well-being: Teaching me about the importance of discipling (receiving and doing). The text that was studied in today’s sermon was 2 Tim 2:2.

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.

Join me on my gratitude journaling journey!
