In this world full of doom and gloom it’s so easy to get caught up in what is going wrong. We can quickly decide to throw a pity party and of course we love to invite others to join us. I wholeheartedly believe the only way to get rid of the negativity is to counter it with lots of thanksgiving.
(Philippians 4:6-7) tells us that the key to peace is bringing our requests to God WITH THANKSGIVING and then God will give us a peace that passes all our understanding. Here are some things you might thank God for today!
Thank you God for providing for my daily needs physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Thank you for watching over me day and night and shielding me from Satan’s countless arrows.
Thank you for a peace that goes beyond my understanding, my circumstance, and my feelings of certainty.
Thank you for giving me a reason to wake up each day and opportunities to serve you.
Thank you for the honor of calling on your name anytime and anywhere. Thank you for the answered and unanswered prayers in my life.
Thank you for always being there through the good and the bad. Thanks for never leaving my side even when I’ve strayed from your side.
Thanks for working things out for my good and your glory. It amazes me how you can turn so little into so much.
Thank you for your eternal word which never changes. Thanks for giving us revelation of things to come and preparing us to face eternity.
Thank you for sending Jesus to save my soul and securing me a place in Heaven. I can’t wait to inherit my mansion and live forevermore in that place where every day is perfect.
Thank you for family, friends, and even total strangers that touch my life in so many ways.
(Philippians 4:8)(The Message) says, Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.
