Jonah 2: 9 But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving.
Giving thanks brings about a transformation in attitude and circumstances. When you decided to give thanks regardless of your circumstances, it expresses trust in God. When life is dark and your dreams are shatter like broken glass, give thanks.
Giving thanks when you don’t feel thankful is hard but it is possible. You must remember, God promises to be with us during the storms of life. The bible tells us to rejoice regardless of our circumstances or pain. The quickest way to turn your situation around is through thanksgiving. Look for the good in each painful event and give thanks for the good you find. Remember to look for the rainbow in each event and when you find it give thanks.
God will not abandon a thankful heart. He will turn heaven and earth upside down to ease your pain when you express trust and thanksgiving. He is a good God, a friend and a guide. He cares about you pain, you hurt, and your broken heart. When you begin to thank God in all things, He pays attention.
When you get up in the morning, give God thanks for another day. During the events of the day give thanks for each blessing. When you retire at night, give thanks. A thankful heart will turn mountains into mold hills. A thankful heart will always triumph regardless what come your way. Do not forget to give thanks today.
There is a joy in giving thanks, which thrills the heart and brings about lasting change. Joy and thanks giving go hand in hand.
Prayer Focus: Today, I will experience the joy of giving thanks in all things.
