Choosing Gratitude Challenge

Would you like to join me in a 30-Day Choosing Gratitude Challenge?

I’m so excited to be sharing this project with my sem wives discipleship group and I’d love for you to hop on the band wagon, too! Each day includes a passage of Scripture (usually quite short), a few devotional thoughts, and a specific challenge or prayer prompt. For example, today’s suggestion is:

Ask the Lord to cultivate in you a more grateful heart over these next thirty days. If you have realized that your “Gratitude Quotient” is not what it should be, confess your ungrateful spirit to the Lord. Ask Him to forgive you and to transform you into a truly thankful person.

What could come of this but good? Additional reading from God’s Word and encouragement in the area of gratitude to Him. Sign this ungrateful heart up!

I’ll kick off this challenge with a public thank you to the Lord for providing Andrew as my life partner. Recently I have been working through a handful of challenging circumstances and Andrew has been right there next to me in each one, encouraging, counseling, listening, and gently correcting me as I stumble along. He chooses to take the time I need to talk through issues that arise even though the demands of the semester are expanding rapidly as December draws near. He’s making the conscious decision to prioritize me and my emotional and spiritual needs above homework and other responsibilities. That’s love in action. And that’s just one of the gazillion reasons I’m grateful for him.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for matching me up with a man perfectly suited to do life with me! I am blessed far beyond what I deserve!

Your turn. What are you thankful for? Direct your gratitude to the One Who deserves it all!

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. (Col. 3:16)

    Abigail,
    I’m thankful that God has been with my wife and I since her journey with breast cancer started five plus years ago. Today she is cancer free!!! For that I rejoice with much gratitude.

      • Wow what a praise to the Lord!! And yes…I haven’t read much of the challenge but I’d imagine much of it is generic and you can adjust as needed. The point is to be directing thanks to God throughout the month and hopefully beyond! =)

  2. Morning girl…. thanks for the link. :-) My Papa was the most grateful person I have ever known. With all that he endured, he never complained and he continually gave his thanks and love in both words and tenderness. I know that came out of his love for his Savior and I look forward to being encouraged to grow in the same way. I am thankful for his legacy and that my children were a part of seeing such a blessing. :-)
