Look at the list you have been circling. How many things has God helped you with over the last 40 days? Can you see His hand?
I looked at my list and reflect over the last 40 days. As the days go by and things happen I like to put little purple hearts of gratitude next to them.
This has probably been my most peaceful holiday season, even with a full calendar and all the busyness of the season, I stayed grounded and pretty relaxed.
I even had FUN. I usually dread wrapping presents, but this year I wrapped a little every day while watching a fun show on Netflix. I had fun with my family too. When I in the past would have said no, or it is too late to watch that movie. I remembered, the goal is to have fun and connect so I said Yes. It was over break, so no school to wake up for. It was fun. 🙂
I made sure to take time to connect with my family and remember what is really important.
There were other great things that happened. I definitely saw God’s hand helping me along.
Take time to express your gratitude to God for all He has done to help you over the last 40 days. Maybe write a prayer letter to God expressing your thanks.
Psalm 30:4,12 “Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness…. my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.”
