~The Eyes of the Heart - Day 25~
~Free My Mind - Day 27~

~Gratitude - Day 26~

And Nehemiah continued, "Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don't be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!" Nehemiah 8:10 (NLT)

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)

The healthiest of all human emotions is said to be Gratitude. Gratitude is defined as the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful.  The Bible says to be “thankful in all circumstances.”  That means you should be thankful even in the midst of hard times. 

If you live with a grateful heart, with praise and thanksgiving to God, it will cancel out any toxic or negative emotions in your life.  When you use prayer to express gratefulness to God, He will lift your spirits, because His joy becomes your strength.  His strength allows you to stand strong in the power of His might.

Today, don’t stop celebrating what the Father has done for you. Rejoice in the Lord! Pray with gratitude! Pray with thanksgiving!

Journal Time:

  • Do you believe that every breath you breathe, and every beat of your heart is a gift from God?
  • Are you truly thankful for all that the Father has done in your life?
  • Make a list of the many things in which you are grateful.


Father, I pray for You joy to fill my heart so that I can see my life with perspective.  Help me to see the many reasons I have to be grateful.  Amen.
