Why I Maintain a Gratitude Journal

If you happen to don’t have a journal, I encourage you to start one to report God’s blessings in your life.

I don’t learn about you, however I’ve forgetter. For that motive: I select calendars with giant squares so I can write down reminders; I put tomorrow’s commitments on a sheet of paper and place it the place I’m positive to see it; I put stick-it-notes with messages on them in distinguished locations all through my dwelling.

My pals and I giggle about it and put it right down to our age, however in accordance with the Bible, forgetting is an issue of the human race.

In Psalm 106 Israel’s non secular downfall started with forgetting. They didn’t keep in mind God’s many kindnesses to them; they forgot what God had achieved; they forgot the God who saved them, who had achieved nice miracles and superior deeds for them (Psalm 106: 7, 13, 21).

Forgetting led to discontent. They grumbled of their tents and didn’t obey the LORD. Quickly they have been copying the sinful methods of the world (Learn the remainder of Psalm 106).

I don’t need a spirit of discontent to seize me and drag me down. For that motive, I hold a gratitude journal. It helps me to anchor my blessings so I cannot neglect them.

After I re-read my journal entries (as I do at the start of a brand new yr), I’m at all times amazed at God’s devoted working prior to now yr. Oh, I’d forgotten about that, I believe. My coronary heart fills with gratitude and hope.  I do know that simply as God has been with me prior to now, He will probably be with me sooner or later.

I don’t wish to miss any of my blessings. So, I’ll carry on writing in my gratitude journal.
What about you? If you happen to don’t have a journal, I encourage you to start one to report God’s blessings in your life. You’ll be doubly blessed as you examine them later.

Father, I thanks that you just delight to bless your individuals in your compassions by no means fail. They’re new each morning; nice is Your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22,23)
