Thanksgiving is an underrated spiritual discipline. Being thankful stops you in your tracks and
forces you to rest in the midst of your "doings" to reflect on God's absolute goodness. It changes the atmosphere and invites the Holy Spirit into the moment. Thanksgiving gives eyes to see and a heart that is open to receive from Him. Thanksgiving is a practice we need to embrace.
We need to be constantly aware of His workings, constantly casting up thanksgiving and praise to Him. We need to acknowledge His work, His goodness and our desperate need of Him. A thankful heart is rooted in the reality of His goodness and presence.
Thank you Lord for this day. Thank you Father for giving me this day to submit my life into your hands. Help me to walk in gratitude to You this day and let it open the door of my heart to Your presence.
Come Holy Spirit come!
