How our hearts begin to harden
When from thanks we start to stray.
So to have a tender heart, dear Lord,
Help me give you thanks each day! —
Loved by the King of kings
I’m not sure if I remember to be truly grateful every single day. I remember to thank God for the food at most mealtimes, but there’s a difference between saying thanks and truly being thankful.
I want to walk with a habitually TRULY thankful heart attitude every day.
So to help me keep track, I’ve decided to start posting a daily log of what I’m thankful for. These will not be long posts, just a daily reminder from me to myself, and to you who choose to read them, to live life from the stance of a grateful heart.
And, for those of you who follow along, if you notice that I slip up for a few days, which I hope won’t happen, but it could, please pray for me and leave me a kind comment letting me know that you are praying and giving me a gentle reminder to continue to be thankful in everything.
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:8
Today I’m thankful for God’s grace and for the privilege of roasting food over a bonfire, sitting close enough to absorb the heat on a cool day or night.
