On my commute home from work tonight, I heard a woman who had called into K-Love say that she was declaring Wednesday as “Worship Wednesday.” She was going to take 5 minutes of her Wednesday to simply worship God…to thank Him for all He is doing in her life.
What a great idea. No prayers of God…please I need this but simply taking time to reflect and thank God.
What am I thankful for today?
I am thankful, God, for the lessons You are teaching me in these moments of quietness without my cellphone. I am thankful for reading books again when I may have mindlessly flipped through apps on my cellphone.
I am thankful for really good sleep last night after working a 3rd shift with my staff.
I am thankful for resisting the temptation to drink pop today.
I am thankful for friends and family who listen and who care.
I am thankful for a great Christian resource I found on anxiety.
I am thankful for continued progress step by step, day by day in this work life balance.
I am thankful for a job that I love despite its challenges. I am thankful for all the ways You are using it to grow me.
Most of all, God, I am thankful that You love me despite my flaws, my imperfections, my mistakes…You love me for simply being me.
