Always Be Thankful

Today's Word: Sep 20, 2020

Do you ever wonder how much more we would enjoy life, how much longer and healthier we would live if we chose a lifestyle of being thankful, constantly thinking about what God has done, all the good things He has in store for us? Even in difficult times, we're thanking Him that He's bigger than our problems. Every time you do that, God is pouring strength, peace, and joy back into you. It's easy to think about what's wrong in life and leak out your joy. You have to develop this principle of always being thankful in all circumstances by purposefully finding things to be grateful for. It's not complicated. When you're brushing your teeth, say, "Lord, thank You for this day." When you're getting dressed, say, "Lord, thank You for my health." When you're driving to work, say, "Lord, thank You for my job." In your thoughts, always keep meditating on God's goodness and continual joy will keep pouring in.
