A Prayer of Thanks
Thankful Thursday lifts gratitude for the moments of peace. No matter what season of life you are in the month of May thrums with activity. The hustle and bustle of preparing, attending, and celebrating can make your head spin if you don’t cultivate time and awareness to recognition and appreciation for the buzzing of life.
Setting a standing date for time in the Word with God remains one of the best ways to grow your awareness and gratitude for this life we get to live. By grounding ourselves in scripture and gleaning the lessons shared there, we receive gifts that make our lives much fuller. Hopefully one of those gifts gleaned is gratitude. Seeing the blessings in our lives from the basics needs being met to the astounding beauty surrounding us each and every day to the exuberant celebrations filled with emotion to the quiet moments open to reflection and appreciation.
So thank you God for the gift of this life. Our gratitude will never match the span of your gracious giving, but we thank you with all our being. Help us to live is such a way that pleases you Lord.
