Making a List, Checking it Twice – Thanksgiving Edition

I will praise the name of God with song, and shall magnify Him with thanksgiving. (Psalm 69:30)

The Thanksgiving holiday for my family starts early in the morning and ends late in the evening. We usually squeeze as much food, fun, family and football into it as possible. Even though the day is set apart for giving thanks, that’s not always the priority. 

Since we always talk about counting our blessings, let’s actually do it this year! List 100 things that you are thankful for right now. Don’t think you can do it? Try this:

• List 10 living people who you are thankful for
• List 10 physical abilities that you are thankful for
• List 10 things about the Gospel that you are thankful for
• List 10 material things that you are thankful for
• List 10 events in the last year that you are thankful for
• List 10 characteristics of God that you are thankful for
• List 10 things about nature that you are thankful for
• List 10 parts of your body that you are thankful for
• List 10 places in the world that you are thankful for
• List 10 modern-day inventions that you are thankful for

When we express our gratitude, the Lord is magnified. Be sure to take some time today to say a simple word of thanks to the God who has blessed us far above what we deserve.
