Giving thanks.  A sacrifice of thanksgiving.  What am I sacrificing?  My own desire to criticize and complain.  To see the bad and not the good.  Remembering God for the good things He has given me.

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

Psalm 107:13-16
13 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.
14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains.
15 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
16 for he breaks down gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron.

Thank you God for so many blessings in my life.  They all come from You. James 1:17

And You will continue to work in me to bring me to the completion of Your goal for my life. Philipians 1:6  The completion of Your perfect masterpiece in me. Ephesians 2:10 NLT

Gratitude List for today:

  1. God's faithfulness and goodness to me in making a way for me even when I was His enemy, to repent and be forgiven.
  2. For the perfect peace of God that I receive when I follow His will.
  3. For where He has placed me in time and location on the Earth - the abundance and freedom I have here.
  4. That He has given me the Holy Spirit to guide me and direct me at all times, if I just ask and pay attention.
  5. For the church - the universal community of believers that love God and seek to serve and follow Him, and for those in my immediate circle of people I know, love, and meet on occasion.
  6. For adoption as His children and for the concept and gift of adoption.
  7. For my wife and children to serve and care for in my time on this earth.
