Hello, sweet sisters in Christ. I apologize for being a day late with this scripture meditation and memory challenge. I really have no excuse. But after almost 11 months of this challenge I’m sure you understand how some days are just a …well, a challenge. Ha!
I’m determined to truly turn my heart toward thanksgiving this week. During the week of Thanksgiving I always like to try to boost my attitude of gratitude so that I remain in this posture of appreciation and humility throughout the holidays. Yesterday on a walk I began to thank God for so many of His benefits. Of course they are innumerable.
And I realized that, while all of the good things of life are indeed sweet blessings and I am grateful for them, we are amiss when we neglect to thank God humbly and frequently for the most important gift of all: our salvation.
So my scripture for the next two weeks is ridiculously short, but oh so powerful. I will undoubtedly say it aloud several times every day as I prepare my heart for Thanksgiving and the holidays to come. I find that when my heart is more grateful it is also more joyful.
Again, I apologize for the delay. But I do anxiously await your scriptures for the next two weeks. This challenge is coming to an end soon. Let’s finish strong!
