So I have an idea…and I’m wondering if you’ll play along?
It’s really nothing new but still pretty important. I think Joyce Meyer gets the credit for the initial quote that started the squirrels running in my head:
Praise and be raised or complain and remain.
That and a ring I saw that spelled out the word “grateful” because I’m a sucker for jewelry with a message and I need all the reminders I can get… You too?
So in that spirit I want to (try to) post every day in November in a spirit of praise and thankfulness. Maybe some days will be short with just a picture of something I’m grateful for. Other days maybe longer as God shows me more about being thankful. ‘Tis the season after all.
Grateful: 1. warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received; thankful
2. expressing or actuated by gratitude
3. pleasing to the mind or senses; agreeable or welcome; refreshing
And you know what I’d really love??? If YOU would join in and fill the comments with what you’re thankful for each day as well. Or if you have a blog and want to jump into your own list over there- what a blessing that would be! Or link up on istagram #30daysofgratefulpraise
Big or small, It’s all praise when we offer our thanks to the giver of all things.
And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. ~ Ephesians 5:20
SO without further ado, here’s what I’m praising God for today:
This Bible and the undeniable fact that I NEED God.
…. and this “Harvest” Yankee candle just because…
Strange but true, once I started honing in on just one thing I was grateful for, ten more presented themselves. Even when we offer up our smallness, God is in the business of multiplying it. Abundance is just His way.
Will this be easy everyday? Probably not, but anything worth having isn’t always easy. Ready to push through with me and be lifted up as a result?
What are you thankful for today? I’m all ears…
P.S. Here’s a handy collection of all the posts in this 30 Days of Grateful Praise series:
