8 Scriptures on Thankfulness

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Learning to be thankful at all times and in all circumstances has been a much needed lesson. After realizing my own sin of complaining and grumbling I've repented and turned to God for help in this area of my life.

I recently began the 1000 Gifts challenge (see Ann Voskamp's book One Thousand Gifts)  and have already noticed a huge difference! I feel joyful, content and fulfilled even during difficult moments and tough days.

Joyfulness always follows thankfulness along with contentment, the abundant life and a greater view of God.

The Bible has lots to say about being thankful and voicing our thanks to God. Here are eight beautiful Scriptures on thankfulness!
