I wrote a blog post a couple of years ago called “My Jedi Mind Trick for Reading the Bible Every Day.” You might want to read about it if you haven’t because it really does work for me. Part of the trick is referring to my quiet time in a way that makes it impossible to ignore. For the longest while I’ve been calling it a “Time of Thanks.”
But, I realized something ironic yesterday… I tend to skip the giving thanks portion of the “Time of Thanks.”
You can’t have joy if you don’t have gratitude. That is what I have discovered this year. And discovering is about all I have done. I still haven’t begun to express my gratitude.
This weekend, I am going to focus on finding 5 things I can verbally say “thank you” for. I challenge you to do the same! Things that go beyond someone holding a door for you or saying you look nice. Things that impact your daily existence. Thank somebody, and then thank the Lord. Thank a family member who looks after you or somehow makes your life easier. Thank your friend who listens and doesn’t judge you. Thank your pastor for bringing the Word to you every Sunday.
Say “thank you,” and feel blessed.
I’ll start with you. Thank you for reading my blog and supporting Sel Rosé. You don’t know how much it means to me. I have more purpose in my day because if it. 🙂
Pass on the thanks!
