With A Grateful Heart

26 Nov

In case you didn’t know…tomorrow is Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving. Not just because we get to eat lots of fabulous food (though that is a big plus!), but because it is a national holiday that focuses on being thankful. How wonderful is that!

So I was inspired to write about some things that I’m thankful for!

My Savior; I am humbled to be loved and cherished by a risen Savior. I am eternally grateful that God is always with me. He never leaves and He forgives me every time I fail. Wow! All glory to Him!

Worship; it is a blessing and an honor to worship Jesus! This is something I love to do and something that I live to do. And having the ability to worship my Savior every day? That is a blessing in itself.

My Husband; This incredible man…I can’t even put into words how blessed I am to be called his wife. He is kind, loving, selfless, and so much more. He makes me want to be a better person and he loves me exactly as I am. He is an encourager and listener; the love of my life and my very best friend.

“It doesn’t get any better than this.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Family; My wonderful, beautiful, funny, and crazy awesome family. They’re my favorite people in the entire world. I could never thank God enough for them. I love them with my whole heart.

My Trials; Yes, I said it. I’m thankful for the trials in life. I know what it is like to have pain, I know what it feels like to lose a parent, and I know what it is like to be brokenhearted. It is because of those trials and that pain that I am exceedingly grateful for all that God has blessed me with. I choose to reflect on the good things in life. Because life is far too short to always focus on the negative.

I’m also thankful for…my church, my country, my education, my health, my job, my home, memories, laughter, and so, so much more.

So this Thanksgiving whether you’re eating turkey, watching football, or spending time with family, take a minute to stop and reflect. Think about how blessed you are to just be alive another day and thank God for His goodness.

“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 9:1

“Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.” 1 Chronicles 29:13

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” 1 Chronicles 16:34

God is so good, all the time!

“There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for!”

Blessings,

-Hannah D.
