GROWING IN GRATITUDE – Advent Week I

This Advent may we contemplate how we show our gratitude to God for sending us His only Son.  We may be feeling challenged to show our gratitude during this pandemic or for other personal reasons. Here are six simple ways to give thanks as we await the birth of Christ!

  1. Begin our prayer each day with praise and thanksgiving. This will help us recall God’s love, constancy, and never-ending care.
  2. Pray the psalms regularly.  Some psalms are helpful in recalling God’s mercy and goodness. Psalms 138, 34, 92, 100, 103, 107, 111,118,136.
  3. Spend a few minutes each evening thanking God for your blessings that day.
  4. Look for God’s blessings especially amid the difficulties of life.
  5. Express your gratitude to other people. Instead of complaining and criticizing, notice and thank people for what they are doing.
  6. Thanks God ahead of time for blessings even before you received them.  This shows we trust that the Lord is working in our situation.
