Plan on Giving Thanks Daily

 I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. (Psalm 9:1 NIV)

A few years ago, I started counting my blessings using a “Blessings Jar” that someone had gifted me. Every time I was “blessed” with something, I would write it down and store it in the jar. At the end of the year, I would go through the jar and read each blessing, giving thanks for God’s blessings over the year that had passed. Earlier this year, I planned on being thankful every day. When I found a spare planner sitting around the house, I started using it to jot down at least one thing that had happened during the day and that I was thankful for. Believe me, there’s always something to give thanks for!

I’m not sure what your thanksgiving looks like, but I’m sure that we can all find the time to be thankful for God’s blessings in our lives on a daily basis. I encourage you to plan thanksgiving in your life not just on that one day in the year, but every day of the year. When you realize you are blessed every day, you will plan on giving thanks daily too. An attitude of gratitude will change your altitude. Because a thankful heart is a happy heart.
