This week I want to focus on the things I’m grateful for! I pray by the end of the week, you will see some things that you can thank God for too! I would love to hear your thank you to God! How has God blessed you? How has He been faithful to you? Please drop me a note and let’s celebrate the work of God in our lives.
Dear Father God,
I want to thank you for this new day. This new opportunity to serve you and know you. Thank you for refreshing my mercy bank every morning I wake up. I’m so blessed to be serving the Living God, who sent His Son to die for me.
Lord, thank you for my strong, god-fearing, and hard-working husband. His love truly amazes me. I’m blessed to be his wife and take this journey through life with him.
Lord, thank you for my family. Thank you for my parents who taught me many great things growing up. I treasure the gift of their love and praise you for giving me an opportunity to flourish in it. Thank you for my siblings. Each one is a huge blessing from you. I love Caleb, Rachel, Abigail, and Bart. They have made life fun, interesting, exciting, and full of wonder at times. I love them for teaching me how to be a good sister and have fun in life.
Thank you for my nieces and nephews. I can’t thank you enough for them. Each one shows me You in a different way. Each one reminds me that I am loved by my Father. They teach me how to have child like faith and remind me that even in my mistakes, You still love me.
Thank you for my extended family, my in-laws, my sibling’s spouses, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Each one has blessed me in some way. It’s amazing how much I have learned through the gift of those You have placed in my life. Thank You Father!
Thank you for those who have mentored me in my walk with You! They have taught me how to live out my faith! They have helped me understand what my gifts and talents are, and how to best use them for Your glory!
Thank you for my health! I’m strengthened daily by You. I see that my energy is coming back and that I have a renewed determination. Thank you for making it possible for me to be free from medication and live a healthy lifestyle.
Thank you for the Word of God that continues to transform my thinking! Thank you for the sacrifice of Your Son on the cross. I will never be able to thank you enough for the work You have done in my life.
Thank you for my arms, legs, hands, and feet. They all work wonderfully and I pray they bring you glory! Thank you for my sense of smell, sight, hearing, touch, and taste. Thank you for giving me a new way to sense You and know You on a daily basis!
Thank you for clean running water, a bed to sleep in, a roof over my head, clean sheets, a pillow to sleep on, clothes in the closet, food in the refrigerator, fresh coffee in the morning, a working vehicle, air conditioning for hot summers, and a heater for cold winters. I have never had to worry about where I will lay my head at night. I’ve never had to wonder if I can take a clean shower in the morning. I’ve never had to go and wait in line to draw water from a well. I’ve never been without shelter. I’ve always had family and friends! Lord, for all this and so much more… I am immensely grateful.
Thank you for being ever faithful to me! I praise you daily for the work of your hands! Please help me to never take for granted all that I have been given.
I love you Lord!
