Our lives can get overwhelming, daunting, and hard. We can easily get discouraged, frustrated, and burned out by circumstances or relationships that are beyond our control. In those seasons where we are feeling hopeless and helpless, the best thing we can do is turn away from the challenges and turn toward Christ. When we remember that God is in control and our lives are not our own, we remember we have a Savior who gives us strength when we are weak and who comforts us in all our times of need.
We love and serve a good, gracious Father, and we are undeserving of the love, grace, and mercy he so freely lavishes on us. What else could we do but give him endless thanks and praise in return?
We hope and pray that the following verses, prayers, videos, and resources help you find countless ways to say “thank you” to the Lord of all heaven and earth, the God who knows and cherishes our hearts. He has given us so much to be grateful for in every season– life, salvation, loved ones, tiny blessings in our busy days, kind words from strangers, sunshine… the list goes on.
