A Heart Bursting with Gratitude


When the stress level and busyness in my life are high, I don’t always take time to thank God for the daily gifts he gives me. Do I zip through the day and crash into bed without even acknowledging all I’ve been given?


Dear God, fill my heart with gratitude and appreciation.
Help me remember that every day I wake up is a gift;
each night I fall asleep is a blessing.
All the meals I eat and personal interactions I experience
are opportunities to thank you.
Help me to be continuously conscious of your kindness
and generosity.


Stop at each meal today and thank God for some specific thing you’ve experienced in the preceding hour.
