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?
