Gratitude

Dear Lord,

Thank you for….

My life, my friends, my family, my salvation.  Thank you for having enough money, health and happiness.  For cats, for not being alergic to cats, for a sense of humor.  For food, food for thought and thoughts.  Free will, freedom from sin, for forgiveness.  I think of all that I have and am ashamed when I fall into the thoughts of ‘have not.’  Thank you for relationships, love and hard questions.  And above all that you promise to never leave or forsake us.  I am truly rich.

I love you – Jill 

How can I ever thank you enough for the marvels of nature that I am aware of—not to mention the myriads of marvels I am totally unaware of? And how can I ever thank you enough for creating me and inviting me to be a part of your family for time and eternity? Help me to so live that my life will also declare your glory. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer.

Please help me to see/hear/learn what you are saying to me in every adverse circumstance I may experience.  I truly want to be what you want me to be and to do what you want me to do. Thank you! 

Lord, fill me today with your spirit.  Keep my eyes on you.

Lord, lead me and guide me today and always.  I know you have a plan for me and my life.  Please use me as you will and help me be receptive to your will.

Lord, please give me a love and passion for your word.

Bless those, love those and pray for those are are disagreeable.  Our hearts are constantly in training to be like Christ's heart.  Work on it!  Especially if you've had a bad day. 

  •      This day I'm going to practice patience
  •      This day I'm going to practice forgiveness
  •      This day I'm going to practice being kind
  •      This day…………….

Imitate (mimic) Christ.
