Grateful Thankful Blessed

I have seen “Grateful Thankful Blessed” on t-shirts, home decorations, screen savers and more.  I enjoy the combination of the three words.  Gratitude is a heart attitude.  Thankfulness is the expression of gratitude.  Blessing is why both should happen.

Life if full of difficulties; however, God is good.  When I struggle being thankful – or I feel buried in the trials of life, I go back to the first way I learned of God’s goodness.  I thank God that he sent Jesus to die on the cross.  I thank Him for sending the Holy Spirit to convict me of my sin and show me how to place my trust in Jesus.  Once I start with that, I can easily list several blessings.  Christian friends and family, God’s Word, a church that teaches God’s Word, and the list goes on.

What are you thankful for?
