Giving thanks for all we have can be easy or hard depending on what’s going on in our lives. If things are tough, it’s often hard to give God our thanks; when things are going well, sometimes we forget to thank God too. We praise God first because he loved us and sent his only son to die for us on the cross (John 3:16), everything else should be gravy.
Of course, it’s never quite that simple. If you’re like me and you need constant reminders to stop and be grateful and thank God for everything, you’ll find this list handy.
