30 days of Gratitude Challenge-Day 9


Today I will start with this quote: 

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.” - Meister Eckhart

Gratitude is all abut being thankful for what you already HAVE, not what you want, think you need, or hoping you get!

Today we are going to show gratitude because we will realize when we put ourselves in a position to be grateful for ALL things in our lives that gratitude has the ability to shift our loves for the BETTER.

Today make the effort to make a GRATITUDE LIST:

Even on what appears to be a bad day you will find there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for!


As the challenge goes on I can think of more and more things to be grateful for!

Today let's focus on being restored!

You know what it is like to be down to your last, to not know your worth, to feel like you are at the end of the rope oh but when God restores you it is a feeling like no other!


"He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake."--Psalm 23:3

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."---Isaiah 40:31

Day 7 of 30 days of gratitude Challenge

Today we will be grateful that sometimes God answers “NO”

In our mind we believe that God should always say “Yes, Sure, and OK” to our prayers! I am so glad that stuff or people I thought I needed God said No to….

Makes me appreciate Beyonce’s song, “Best thing I never had” so much more!

We must remember when we pray these three things in relation to how God answers our prayer:

*Love of God-God desires what is best for you.
*Wisdom of God-God knows what is best for you.
*Power of God-Only God has the power to bring it to pass.

Today show gratitude because God told you NO!

Day 6 of the 30 days of gratitude!

We are moving right along and I do not know about you but everyday I wake up with a new sense of gratefulness because I am making it a point to be grateful.

Today we are going to focus on gratitude for our TRIALS.

I know that sounds crazy but just imagine what your trials have taught you.

Mine has taught me who my real friends are, that I can endure a lot more than what I thought I could, my trials have molded me for the better, they have made me a stronger prayer warrior, and most importantly they have taught me that God will do just what He said He would do.

I am grateful that through my trials I have learned God is FAITHFUL!

Today show some gratitude for your trials!

Today is day 5 of the 30 day gratitude challenge.
Today we will focus on PEACE, the peace that surpasses all understanding.
I am so glad that God is a God of peace. Think about those storms you have made it out of or even the ones you are in now and remember that God can and will provide peace.

I thank a dear friend of mine for giving me this prayer I say daily now, “Lord by NO means should no one or no thing still my peace on today”

Scriptures to read on today to help you be grateful for God’s peace.
John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

30 days of Gratitude-Day 4

We have made it to day 4 of this challenge only by God's grace.  If you were serious about yesterday's focus area then you can really appreciate God's grace.

I hope that you find yourself daily letting gratitude roll off of your lips instead of complaints.

Today I challenge you to focus on finances. Thank God that although you may not have all the money you want, he has given you enough to have your needs met.

You were able to put clothes on your back, shoes on your feet, and there has been a meal on the table. 

Until we are appreciative of what we have then why should we be blessed with more?


I pray that on this journey we create a new habit, instead of complaining when things appear to not be working in our favor we open our mouths with gratitude for all God has done, all God is going to do, and just because of who God is!

Today we the area we will focus on is GRACE

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness...."
2 Corinthians 12:9

If you still feel you have no reason to show gratitude for grace then remember that grace is defined as getting what you don't deserve, or more formally unmerited favor.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."
Ephesians 2:8

On today lets show gratitude for God's grace, and if you need some help have a flash back to a situation in your life when you know grace is the reason you received unmerited favor.

In ALL your getting, get understanding!
