Yesterday we started our fall focus: Aware and Grateful
If you missed anything click over to yesterday’s post????
Today we will begin our scripture lists and define everyday thanksgiving.
In the study Everyday Thanksgiving, Jana Kennedy-Spicer says,
“True thanksgiving is so much more than a holiday or a by-product of changing seasons.
True thanksgiving is a heart condition displayed in our normal day to day life.
True thanksgiving is everyday thanksgiving.”
Our heart condition can be transformed by being in the word and molding our attitudes around the truth.
Today’s list is four scriptures that Jana has paired with four principles.
Read them during the day and record them in a notebook. Leave a comment and tell us your favorite scripture of the day!
“Give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Everyday Thanksgiving is not based on our
circumstances, it is in spite of our circumstances.
“Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Everyday Thanksgiving is not an occasional feeling or spoken word,
it is an always attitude.
“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!”
1 Chronicles 16:34
Everyday Thanksgiving is not determined by the good or bad
of our situation, it is rooted in the goodness of God.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 15:57
Everyday Thanksgiving does not depend on worldly achievements,
it arises from the eternal victory given to us by Jesus Christ.
You are good and your love endures forever! We are thankful for who you are and all you do for your children. Help us enter today with eyes wide open, ready to see, and become aware and grateful. May the air be filled with our praises as we read your word and see how faithful you are!
