Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Happy Friday! Welcome to episode 115!!
So excited for the weekend ahead of us. If you’ve been praying along with me for some time, you know that I am all about the Sabbath. Finding time to rest. I am a firm believer that even three hours “off” will do wonders for your life.
I wanted to focus today’s devotional on gratitude. It is November, and it’s officially the month of being grateful, but we don’t need a holiday to remind us to be thankful for everything in our lives.
Sometimes we don’t say it enough, and I hope today’s devotional encourages you to do so. Make a list of all the things you are thankful for. Maybe it’s your health; maybe it’s your home, your family, a new job, or a current job. Find the people and the things you can be thankful for.
2020 has been a year, and some of us have had just about enough of it. Between the pandemic and the conversations we’ve been having, it was hard at times to be hopeful for the outcome of this year. But even in loss, we can be thankful for the peace Jesus’ presence gives us.
I lost my grandmother this year, but I have a sense of happiness knowing she is dancing in heaven with my other grandparents.
Maybe you’ve had one crazy year, and your life is falling apart. I will give you one thing you can hold onto. The breath inside your lungs.
If that’s all, you can be thankful for, meditate on that.
Jesus, thank you for giving me another day of life.
You’ll see how a few thanks can go a long way. Jesus will always be good. He isn’t waiting for you to thank him for the last blessing he gave you in order to bless you again. He isn’t cruel or conditional. His love is unconditional, and my prayer for today is that we learn to thank Him unconditionally.
Jesus, thank you! We don’t say it enough, so we are going to say it today. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the clothes on our backs and the food on our plates. Thank you for the breath in our lungs; thank you for the joy of living a life with you. Today and this weekend, we devote ourselves to giving you the time you deserve—undivided attention worshiping your goodness. We love you with every fiber in us; it is in your Holy name that we pray, Amen!
