DAILY THEME: Thank God for His blessings
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever
– Psalm 118:1

Take a moment today and give thanks to God for His enduring mercy and His everlasting goodness. Say it in a prayer. Read the psalm out loud. Say it out loud when you thank Him. Say it with your full heart.

Giving Thanks

Meditate on the many ways God has blessed you. Read Psalm 103:2. It simply says: Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.

Be a blessing to someone else today. Go out of your way to bless somebody at their point of need. Whether it be someone in need of a listening ear or a hand with getting groceries into the house, be that blessing for someone else today. It may call for you to go above and beyond, even out of your way, but it might make a difference and make an impact.

Go Beyond the Norm

Make today the day where you make a move to make a difference in someone else’s day. Make it happen and make it better for that other person. Go so far as to post thankful sticky notes throughout your office or share a simple message on someone’s social media feed and timeline.
