There Are Always Reasons to be Thankful

There Are Always Reasons to be Thankful

I memorized Psalm 100 the first year I was a believer.

Verse four is one of my favorites: “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”

It’s so important to enter God’s presence with a thankful heart. Thanksgiving always leads to praise, both of which allow us to hear God's voice more clearly.

Yes! Giving thanks prepares our hearts for prayer and fellowship.

Even when we’re entering less “holy” places, thanksgiving can change our hearts and minds.

For example, if we enter our workplace thanking God for the good things, we’ll be healthier, friendlier, kinder, and more appreciative.

There's always, always, always something to be thankful for!
