What Are You Thankful For?

Every year on Thanksgiving, we gratefully remember people, events, and things for which we are thankful. But what if we remembered to be grateful every day? The Bible says, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18, ESV).

Every day for 10 days, write down five things you are thankful for, using the suggestions below or creating your own categories. (If you have to skip any days, just start the next day where you left off.)

Day 1: Five people you are thankful for (past or present)

Day 2: Five places you are thankful for

Day 3: Five Bible truths or instructions you are thankful for

Day 4: Five enjoyable events you recall thankfully

Day 5: Five things God created that you are grateful for

Day 6: Five songs you are thankful for

Day 7: Five inventions you gratefully appreciate

Day 8: Five books you are thankful for

Day 9: Five gifts you have received that you are thankful for

Day 10: Five foods you are thankful for

Each day, think through that day’s list, remembering why you are thankful for each item. For example, if you listed a friend’s name on Day 1, think about reasons you are thankful for them. Review your lists often, and remember to thank God in prayer for your blessings!
