"Giving thanks always
and for everything
to God the Father
in the name of
our Lord Jesus Christ"

Ephesians 5:20
November 20--Attitude of Gratitude--Day 20
give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18[NKJV]
An Attitude of Gratitude Thought and Prayer:
Dear God, even though I feel my circumstances are not the best right now I will choose to give You thanks for them.
I will choose to be obedient to Your word and believe that my current circumstances are Your will for me at this time.
I will focus on giving You thanks and praise for all things, and by doing that I will not be grumbling, complaining or thinking negatively.

How can I possibly do this if... according to my circumstances are less than ideal?
  • I will lean not on my own understanding, but in all my ways acknowledge You, God,and trust in You according to Proverbs 3:5.
  • I will trust in You to work all things together for good in my life according to Romans 8:28.
  • I will believe that, what the enemy may have meant for harm in my life, You, God, allowed, to somehow accomplish good for me, according to Genesis 50:20.
  • I believe You will fulfill Your plan and purpose for me according to Psalm 138:8.
  • I can remain positive by thinking, saying and doing all this for:
    "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
    ...for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,... Philippians 4:11-12[NKJV]
