So I came across this post from Renown and Crowned on cultivating Gratitude. She has been posting her journal of all the things she is grateful for and I was inspired to do the same. Every thursday I will make a new cultivating Gratitude post.
Its so easy in our daily lives, in the midst of work, spouses and growing babies to go without acknowledging the Mercies God brings us everyday
To go without saying thank you to our heavenly Father for all he has allowed us to partake in.
I know its easier for me to complain about whats wrong or not going my way than to be grateful and full of praise. So this blog series will help to keep me accountable and focused on cultivating an attitude of gratitude
If you keep a gratitude journal or blog please share link or thoughts in the comments below.
Lamentations 3:22-24 ESV
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
