It's such a joy to be thankful. We can choose to focus on the negative or we can choose to focus on all the wonderful things that God does for us daily. You can join GREG with your own thankful post.
I am thankful for the wonder of God's WORD. I love how God speaks through His written WORD deep into my heart. I love how He gives me a word that ministers to my spirit and then I find it time after time in the scriptures and each time it just speaks volumes. 'Seek' is one such word. I love everything about the word. I love that it means to search out and to diligently be looking for something. I am seeking a deeper and a more intimate relationship with Him. I am so thankful for the wonder of God's WORD.

I am thankful for the opportunity to see this:
So I can be appreciative and thankful for this:
Lord, may I never take for granted the home you provide for us and the modern conveniences that many people don't have. Thank you for your daily provision in my life.
I am thankful for good health. We just don't know understand how blessed we are until we see others hurting. Our health is something that we forget to be thankful for until a health crisis arises.
Thank you, Lord , for the good health you have bestowed upon me and my family. May we be ever so grateful for the blessing of health.
I am thankful for our church. Too many times we focus on the outward beauty of our church houses and don't focus enough on the beautiful spirit that needs to be on the inside. Our church that looks like this:
is no more filled with the Spirit of God than a church that looks like this:
In fact, the people that worship here aren't bogged down by programs and budgets. They are free to worship the Lord with all that they have and all that they are. They worship unhindered.
Oh, Lord, help us to be free in our worship and realize that it's not about a pretty building. It's not about the people. It's not about the music. It's not about anything but You. May we worship you in spirit and in truth. Always.
"God is a Spirit; and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24)
I am thankful for life. God has blessed me with 48 years of abundant life. He blessed me with the miracle of healing when I was 10 and He has kept His hand upon me since that day. I am so grateful for His mercy and grace. I am humbled by His bountiful blessings.
Thank you, Lord, for the gift of life. May I never take a day of my life for granted. Help me to see You in each minute of my days here on earth. May my heart be filled with the wonder of you. May I see your manifest presence everywhere I look. Oh, my sweet Lord, show me your glory!
