Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart


Gratitude is a spiritual practice that changes our littleness into abundance. It changes how we see our lives, situations, and experiences. We can always find something to be grateful for, even when life is hard or less than ideal.


Dear Jesus,
take all that is in me
and pour it out in a sacrifice of gratitude.
Teach me that gratitude is a way
to always come close to and experience your presence.
Practicing gratitude is an opportunity
to name all the ways you love and bless me in my life.


Set a timer for five or ten minutes. Begin to count and name all your blessings, all the things for which you are grateful; all the ways that God loves and cares for you.
