Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving…
- Colossians 4:2
Be vigilant in thanksgiving today.
Thankfulness and gratitude are vital to have every day because it helps clear our minds and draws us closer to the Lord. Gratitude keeps our hearts open and yielding to the Holy Spirit’s leading, unlike an ungrateful heart that is closed off and stubborn.
Instead of viewing tasks with the mindset of, “I have to do this,” try viewing it with, “I get to do this.” This can aid in transforming our mindset and help us face the work that needs to be done more joyfully and with confidence.
As we train ourselves to view challenges as a privilege and opportunities for growth, our hearts will be filled with more gratitude.
Even as you go through these challenges and work on tasks, you can still be in constant, earnest prayer throughout the day.
Doing this will keep you in close communication with the Holy Spirit, who is your holy helper, your constant companion and counselor. Ask Him to help you when you are overwhelmed and in need, and He will give you the solutions.
Today: Whatever tasks need to be done, work at it with all your heart and with thanksgiving!
