“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; his love endures forever.” – 1 Chronicles 16:34
Father, I give thanks to You. You are so good! I thank You for my home, my family, my provisions. It’s so easy to take these things for granted, yet there are so many people in the world who are not even near this fortunate. So many suffer hunger, and yet here we are — never truly hungry. Thank you so much for providing every thing we need, Lord. Help us to never take it for granted, and to always seek what good we can do for others with our abundance.
Father, cultivate a thankful heart within me! Help me have a heart that is truly thankful in every circumstance, for it is then that I will see You for Who You are. You are magnified when I view things through the lens of thankfulness. I can see You for how amazing You really are, and my circumstances don’t look as big and scary.
Help me to take the time to just be thankful. Help me to lay aside my list of things I need to accomplish for a time in order to relish in giving thanks where thanks is due. Help my heart, Holy Spirit, to embrace thanksgiving as a lifestyle.
