The Season of Thankfulness
God calls us to be a thankful people. As His followers, we have so much to be thankful for. I love the phrase, “Have an Attitude of Gratitude.” We are in that season we know as Thanksgiving. Allow these Scripture truths to encourage a thankful grateful heart and attitude. Not just on Thanksgiving Day, but all year through.
Psalm 118:21 “I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.”
- We are thankful to God for saving us and giving us eternal life. Share your salvation story with someone that you are sharing Thanksgiving with this year.
I Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
- Share a victory that you have been blessed by this year.
I Thessalonians 5:18 “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
- Think of a circumstance (forgive – release – let go) you wish had been different this year. What life lesson can you take from this circumstance and give gratitude for.
Jeremiah 33:11 “Give thanks to the Lord Almighty, for the Lord is good; His love endures forever.”
- What comes to mind when you think of the Goodness of God?
Psalm 136:26 “Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.”
- Take some time to praise God because of His love that is unconditional.
Psalm 103:1-5 “Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
- Take some time to reflect on this passage in Psalms. And take each letter of our alphabet and give a praise that starts with each letter.
A – Awesome is your power that created the universe
B – Blessing of Brownies
