Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving

And into His courts with praise.

Be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.

For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting
 

And His truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 100:4,5

 
 
 
 People who give thanks have the insight and capability
 
to perceive the beauties and blessings that God creates.
 
May we live our lives recognizing that we are given
 
amazing gifts moment by moment.
 
May we begin and end each day by thanking God
 
for the blessings He has given us.
 
 
 

A thankful heart of praise

removes mountains of concerns.

It provides a perspective from which

we can view life and not become overwhelmed

by worldly circumstances.


 
Our giving becomes receiving
 
when we live a life filled with thankfulness.

Gratitude is a positive emotion or attitude
 
in acknowledgment
 of a benefit
 
that one has received or will receive.
 
When gratitude comes from a pure heart...
 
it blossoms.
 
 
Thankfulness allows us to be grateful
 
in any circumstance,

and keeps our hearts in right relationship

to the Giver of all good gifts.

When we concentrate
 
on finding the good in every situation,
 
we discover that our lives are filled with
 
an ocean of reasons to praise God!

 There are always, always, always

 causes for thankfulness.

 

We deem it an honor and privilege

to know that God created us

to know Him personally.

 

Thank You, God, for giving us the breath of life.

Thank You, for Christ Jesus.

We know that it is You

who has made our lives worth living.


Thank You, God, for all You have done,

for all You have planned,

and for all You are doing.

We know that everything we have

or will ever be...

are gifts from You.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A grateful heart

can become one of the most powerful ways

to change our lives for the better.

 

Taking a few moments each day

for thanksgiving and praise

can become a very powerful way

to change our hearts and lives,

forever!

Each moment of every day
 
is an opportunity to reflect and give thanks.
 
Thankfulness keeps our hearts in right relationship
 
to the Giver of all good gifts.

When we live with a spirit of thanksgiving

we can rejoice in the midst of tribulation.

Believers are instructed to

be thankful in all circumstances.

By giving thanks continually,

even for the circumstances

that may cause pain or discomfort,

let us be reminded of how blessed we are.

We see more blessings...

even in the darkest situations...

when we live with a spirit of thanksgiving.

 Giving thanks to God for everything in our lives, daily,

helps us to realize that

nothing in our lives should be taken for granted

or looked upon as anything short of extraordinary.

The more we focus on our blessings

and the many things we have to be thankful for...

the less fear, negativity, and anxiety we will nurse.

 

Great blessings are promised to those who are grateful.

We have a lot to be grateful for.

We can be grateful, if the truth be told,

for everything that has ever happened in our lives

to bring us through... and to... such a time as this.

Gratitude is one of the secrets to a happy life and living.

When we are grateful,

we invite happiness to come.

Gratitude is the state of being grateful.

Gratitude is thankfulness.

Gratitude begins with observation.

 When we are grateful...

focusing on all we have to be thankful for,

it is easier to keep our problems, wants, and concerns

in the right perspective.

 

Cultivating gratitude is one of the most beautiful

and spiritually enriching journeys we can take in life.

Cultivating gratitude
 
helps us to realize a greater sense of spiritual
 
and emotional well-being. Thankfulness cultivates humility.
 

Cultivating a spirit of thankfulness honors God
 
and strengthens our faith.
 
Gratitude is a beautiful quality
 
that individuals can successfully cultivate further.

God is constantly giving us overflowing reasons
 
to be thankful...
 
in good measure....
 
pressed down, shaken together, and running over!
 

When we begin to realize the many causes for thankfulness

 the more grateful we begin to feel,
 
and the more grateful we are...
 
the nearer we will draw to God, our Source.

In everything... we are asked to give thanks...

because everything is working together for our good.

Every morning we wake up we've been given a wonderful gift...


another day of life.

Let us be grateful each day for the gift of life.

We are richly blessed by God,
 
Who fills each and every day with blessings.

Each day offers us authentic and beautiful moments

to experience and embrace.

 

We have many things to be grateful for

that we might not even notice.

In our greatest distress...

let us praise and thank God.

Let us bless the Lord at all times...

even when trouble seems to overwhelm us.

Let us praise and thank God even before we cry.

Let us never ignore the countless blessings

that God freely and lovingly gives, daily.

Let us seize each day and understand that

it is God's grace and mercy

which is allowing us to see the  sunrise and the sunset.

 Without God's grace and mercy we could not even exist.

Our gratitude should renew itself daily.
 
When we are continually grateful...

we realize that all life and every good thing is a gift from God.

 

We all have so much to be thankful and grateful for. 

 May we seek diligently the many causes for thankfulness,
 
and take nothing for granted.

When we start thanking God

for the things we usually take for granted,

our perspective changes. 

There are always causes for thankfulness.

Our duty is simply to bless God, and be thankful...
 
no matter what. 
 

Being thankful and praising God transforms

the spiritual environment that we have.

According to Scripture:

Praise and thankfulness

are the divine approaches we should take.

The more grateful we are...

the more power we acquire to press on

to greater heights.

God is infinitely marvelous and eternally powerful.

God owns and controls all there is.

He created us and all we have.

We are God's creation. We belong to God, our Maker.

Our existence is because of God.

For in God we live, and move, and have our being.

Acts 17:28

May we appreciate all God has blessed us with like...

breathing in fresh air.

Every breath we take is a gift from God.

Every breath we take is an undeserved miracle...

a blessing, and a wonderful gift from God.

 

We should be thankful that we are able to speak, hear, do and be.   

Our life, our breath, and all that is seen or unseen...

are gifts from God.

 

Gratitude, thankfulness, and appreciation

are three powerful forces

that penetrate and nourish the soul.

These powerful forces

can lead us to profound inner transformation.

 

The Bible is full of passages on gratitude and thankfulness.

Gratitude, thankfulness, and appreciation

are qualities that are important to God!

When we are sincerely grateful...

we become more of who God created us to be.

God is the Source of all good gifts.

It is God alone Who deserves praise.

When we praise and thank God

we come to realize a gladness of heart.

Those old burdens seem to roll away...

when we bless and thank God.

 A person can almost be defined

by his or her attitude toward gratitude.

The evidence of greatness is demonstrated by our ability

to see and acknowledge causes for thankfulness in our lives.

Being grateful is a sign of one's closeness and love of God.


Thank You, God.
 

Without gratefulness, we become arrogant and self-centered.

Many enjoy the blessings of life, shelter, food, and good health
 
and never even say "Thank You" to God.
 
How this lack of appreciation must grieve the heavenly Father!
 
Whenever we fail to give adequate gratitude

for the blessings we have received from God...

we become ingrates.
 
Ungratefulness is one of the worst of all sins!
 
Let us not be tricked (by Satan)

into believing that we have achieved anything on our own.
 

It would behoove us to be reminded that

everything we have or will ever be...

are gifts from God.


 
Rather than living an unappreciative life...

let us live each and every day,

regardless of our circumstances,

with a grateful heart.
 

 
When we focus on blessings rather than wants,
 
we tend to be happier.
 
Let us search until we find cause for thankfulness.
 



 

Regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves...

let us be just as thankful in those times of trial

 as we are in those times of abundance.

We should be

filled with gratitude.


 Gratitude can make all the difference in us... and our world. 

 People who are consciously focused on being grateful
 
and sincerely express their gratitude...
 
tend to feel better and experience greater levels of joy
 
and inner peace in their lives.
 
 
 

 When trouble comes or if it never does...

let us think about all we have to thank God for.

Who, but the Creator gives to all men life and

breath and everything else? (Acts 17:25)

To God be the glory for every blessing abundantly

and unceasingly bestowed upon us.

 

Let us go from a complaining life to one which cultivates

 
and is grounded in a spirit of Thanksgiving.

 

Trust...

there are always causes for thankfulness.

With the blessing of God

we can be rich even when we are poor,

for "the blessing of the Lord,

it maketh rich" (Proverbs 10:22).

 
We have not earned,
 
nor do we deserve all that God has given;

nevertheless, the Giver of all good gifts...

just keeps on giving.
