Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
- Psalm 100:4
When you feel far away and disconnected from God, stop what you’re doing and begin to just offer thanks to Him.
Thankfulness helps connect your heart to the Lord’s, even in the midst of a hectic day. Even in prayer, if you aren’t sure what to pray for or how to start, you can never go wrong by starting your prayer by thanking Him!
Every morning when you awake, try to make it a habit of just taking a few moments to thank Him for the day ahead. When you do this, you will be setting the tone for your day before your feet even hit the bedroom floor.
It allows your heart to instantly connect with His and you’ll have more confidence to face whatever tasks needed to be done because the Lord is by your side!
Today, offer up thanks to the Lord! This is a day He has made. His goodness knows no bounds, His mercies are new every morning, and He deserves all the glory!
Prayer: “Lord, help me to begin each day with a thankful heart. You are worthy of all my praise and gratitude. May I never forget your goodness and the promises you’ve made!”
