Lord, thank you for your love that endures forever, no matter who we are and the circumstances in our lives.

I felt like I needed to express that from the deepest parts of my heart to open this devotional.

Here are some more heart truths I need to express:

God, thank you for your mercy, your patience, and your grace. Thank you for all these things even when we don’t deserve them, when we don’t fully understand them, and when we don’t give them to others.

God, thank you for always being there for us, offering help and support, especially when we don’t perceive you, feel you, or believe you are close to us.

God, thank you for who you are – being Love, truth, and every other good thing – despite, in our human imperfections, forgetting who you are at times.

And, God, thank you for your Son Jesus who made it possible for humanity to have a loving relationship with you when he paid the ultimate price on the cross. May we never forget that.

I love you, God.

If you have any heart truths of gratitude for God, please don’t hesitate to share them with him. He loves when his children speak to him, and he’ll appreciate you sharing how much you appreciate him.

You shouldn’t be stingy or feel ashamed to express your gratitude to our awesome God. He’ll never reject you for revealing your grateful heart towards him, no matter how corny or goofy it may appear to the world. (Pfft, who cares what the world thinks!)

Whatever way you feel moved to share your thankfulness is okay since God made you special in your own unique way. I, for example, enjoy writing, so I often feel compelled to share my thanks through the written word. You, however, can share your gratitude to God in whichever way is most authentic to you, even if it’s through singing, dancing, or playing a musical instrument.

I promise you that if you share your gratitude to God more often in your life, you will reap the benefits of being closer in your relationship with him.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for everything you are and for everything you do. Thank you for all the good things in my life and for all the difficult and challenging things in my life. I know you will work it all for the good of your kingdom and for each of your children. Please, Father, make me more like Jesus so I can love you and appreciate you without limits or any inhibitions. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Throughout the Day: Give thanks to God whichever way you feel moved to do so. Perhaps listening to this beautiful worship song can help you get started:
