Pray: Dear God, we come to You with thanks in our hearts today. This gratitude challenge is opening our eyes to the goodness in our lives. In the past we might have grumbled about things not going the way we wanted. But practicing gratitude has shown us that times when we did not get what we hoped for, it was really You working behind the scenes to bring something better into our lives. We thank You for showing us this truth, Father. You always have our best interest in mind. Help us to never forget that. Too often in the past we have turned to different things that we thought would satisfy us. We tried to quench our thirst with worldly things. But we are learning that Jesus is the living water and truly the only thing that can ever fill us. God, we hand our lives over to You, in full surrender. We know that the world cannot meet our needs, but You can. We trust You, God. When we question the circumstances of our lives, we will remember that Your ways are better than our ways. We know Your greatness, God. Your power is endless and we are in awe of You. Thank You, Lord, for Your unfailing love. You are always looking out for us and helping us. You are there, even when we don’t feel it. And You are constantly working in our lives. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
Practice Gratitude: What are you grateful for? I am grateful to know that God is always working in our lives, even when we don’t realize it. I am grateful to know that God has our best interest in mind. And I am grateful for the greatness of our God.
