Make a Thankful List

Adapted from Quiet Times with God

O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His compassion and lovingkindness endure forever!

To help you achieve and maintain a new level of contentment in your life, I encourage you to use some of your quiet time with God to make a list of everything you have to be thankful for. It should be a long list, one that includes little things as well as big things. Why should it be long? Because we all have a lot of things to be thankful for if we just look for them.

Get out a piece of paper and start listing things you have to be thankful for. Keep the list and add to it frequently. Make it a point to think about the things that you’re grateful for when you’re driving the kids to an activity or waiting in line at the post office or whatever you may be doing throughout the day. You can only learn the power of thankfulness by practicing it every day. Meditating on what you have to be grateful for every day and verbalizing it will be amazingly helpful to you.

Prayer of the Day: Father, thank You so much! You are only good, and I should always be mindful of the many blessings I enjoy. Please open my eyes to the good and cultivate a heart of gratitude in me on the daily, amen.
