If you are reading this, you just found reason number one to be thankful.

Gratitude: “The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for, and to return kindness.” It’s one of the single most important things we can do.  Given to a stranger, a family member, a co-worker, a spouse, or a friend, a simple thank you goes a long way.  If you ever doubt that you have something to be thankful for, here are 6 reminders:

1.You Are Alive.   Life is a gift. Your existence is a testament that God wants you here.  So much so that he made you in his own likeness and very image. It doesn’t get any better than that. “I Will Praise You For I am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made.”- Psalms 139:14

2.You Are Eternally Loved.   “Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever.” – 1 Chronicles 16:34

3.With God, We always Win.   “Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”1 Corinthians 15:57

4.God Is Forever Merciful.   Second chances, and thousandths chances are in God’s plan for us. No need to worry. You are forgiven.  “O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endures forever.Psalms 107:1

5.Gratitude Is Of God.   “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

 6.Gratitude Opens Doors.  Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” – Philippians 4:6
