Joyce Meyer (November-30-2020) Daily Devotion: Make a Thankful List.
To help you achieve and maintain a new level of contentment in your life, I encourage you to use some of your quiet time with God to make a list of everything you have to be thankful for. It should be a long list, one that includes little things as well as big things.
Why should it be long? Because we all have a lot of things to be thankful for, and we’ll see them if we look for them. Get out a piece of paper and start listing things you have to be thankful for. Keep the list and add to it frequently. Make it a point to think about and thank God for the things that you’re grateful for when you’re driving the kids to an activity, or waiting in line at the post office, or whatever you might be doing throughout the day. You can only learn the power of thankfulness by practicing it intentionally. When you meditate on what you have to be grateful for every day and verbalize it to God, it will be amazingly helpful to your thought life and heart (see Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for the ways You have, are, and will continue to bless me. Help me to be mindful to thank You throughout the day, and to live with a grateful attitude. In Jesus’ name, amen.
