For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:15-16
A large part of growing in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ is not just about laying all of your petitions before Him, but is a heart full of thanksgiving for all of His love, mercy, and grace. A heart that continually finds itself throughout the day giving thanks for finding a parking spot up close when its raining, for stopping a headache, for stretching your finances to meet all your needs, etc. We teach our children to say “thank you” but it should also be something we automatically find ourselves doing continuously to our Heavenly Father. Through a heart of thanksgiving, you can be renewed, regenerated, and re-energized!
