I was searching for inspiration this week because I am struggling to focus less on my circumstances and more on my Creator and I came across this blog post from Paul David Tripp. It was too good not to share. 

 

I hope that as you read through this Thank You, Lord list that your mind and heart are transformed. 

 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.”

 

“Thank you, Lord,
for the morning light
reminding me of your
presence and faithfulness.

Thank you, Lord,
for every breath I breathe
reminding me of your
sustaining mercies.

Thank you, Lord,
for physical strength
reminding me that
all power comes from you.

Thank you, Lord,
for a mind that works
reminding me that
all rationality starts with you.

……

Thank you, Lord,
for work to do and tasks to complete
reminding me of your
incessant work on my behalf.

Thank you, Lord,
for family and friends
reminding me of my
welcome into your eternal family.

Thank you, Lord,
for the body of Christ
reminding me of your
promise to meet my spiritual needs.

Thank you, Lord,
for continuing to rescue me from me
reminding me of your
ongoing spiritual care.

Thank you, Lord,
for those who encourage, comfort, and exhort me
reminding me of the
faithful zeal of your grace.

Thank you, Lord,
for the majesty of your Word
reminding me that
you are my greatest teacher.

Thank you, Lord,
for the illumining power of your Spirit
reminding me of your
zeal that I would know, love, and serve you.

Thank you, Lord,
for the pain of conviction
reminding me of my
need for your sanctifying grace.

……..

Thank you, Lord,
for fresh starts and new beginnings
reminding me again and again
of the faithfulness of your forgiving love.

Thank you, Lord,
for my calling as your ambassador
reminding me to
live with your kingdom in view.

Thank you, Lord,
for your guiding hand
reminding me that
my life moves according to your control.

Thank you, Lord,
for suffering and trials
reminding me of
my weakness and your strength.

………..

Thank you, Lord,
that you are the Lord of Lords
and that by grace
I am your child forever.”

“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.” (Psalm 9:1-2, ESV)

God bless,

Paul David Tripp
