Give Him all Your Thanks and Praise
Psalm 69:30 (NCV)I will praise God in a song
and will honor him by giving thanks.
Oh, friends!! We have so much to be thankful for!!
Have you every heard of Ann Voskamp? I discovered her a few months ago (sorry, guys, I have apparently been under a proverbial rock). She is the author of the book One Thousand Gifts. She writes at her blog, A Holy Experience. On her site, she writes about the Joy Dare. The Joy Dare is all about giving thanks (and finding joy) in the little things. It is about making it a habit to give thanks to God.
One her site, you can download monthly calendars with suggestions for being thankful, even in the little things. Her idea is if we find three things to thank God for each day we will easily reach one thousand by the end of the year. Are you up for the challenge?
I have been keeping a notebook for a few weeks now. I try to think of at least three things a day to thank God for. Sometimes it isn’t easy… It’s easier to get caught up in the idea that things have to be big to make you grateful. But this challenge is changing my mindset. I am finding so many things– little things– to thank God for! And it is filling me with JOY! God is revealing himself in the details of my life. God is so good!! He is worthy of our thanks and praise!!
I have many blogging friends that share their lists of thanks and praise to our Lord, following the challenge set forth by Ann. You may also see these lists on blogs, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. Do you have something to be thankful for? Link up your praises or give thanks to God in the comments below. Let’s get in the habit of giving God thanks and praise everyday. To God be all the glory!
