Yesterday's challenge left me desiring to continue in the mode of gratitude and thanks. Simply put, it makes you feel good--to dig deep in search of all the things for which you can thank God and to stop and appreciate His unconditional love. Although it can be difficult to express our feelings, it's important to acknowledge one another when it's deserved, and maybe even more so, just because! One important lesson I've learned in my journey to know Christ is that no one can completely fulfill me, but Jesus. Not my husband, not my daughter, not my best friends. However, it is fulfilling when we receive thanks from those we care about! So, let the gratitude mission continue!
40 Day Challenge--Day 9:
Express your appreciation towards someone meaningful in your life. Start this challenge in prayer, asking God to show you the individual(s) He wants you to thank. You can do this through any form: verbally (in person or over the phone), a handwritten letter, an email, a Facebook message, etcetera. But let's try and get more communicative than a text message on this one! Explain to this person how they have impacted your life, and why you are thankful to GOD that he has placed them in your path.
