Giving Thanks for Answered Prayer

As you received Christ Jesus as Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in fate, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

Colossians 2:6-7

Keeping a gratitude journal … it’s a recommendation from everyone from Oprah to Judy in my small group. If you haven’t kept one, it’s a great time to start.

A gratitude journal focuses on the blessings in your life, re-centering you on God’s gifts. Looking back through the pages, we may find numerous blessings that we’ve forgotten about in the rush of the world. This journal would be helpful in doing another great practice of mindful Christianity today: Spending 30 minutes thanking God for our answered prayers.

So pick up your journal or your list of blessings written earlier this week. Take some time to walk (or sit) with the Lord today to let him know that you’ve noticed how He has blessed you.
