Thankfulness is the acknowledgment of the goodness in our lives. It's when we are conscious of a benefit received.
An Attitude of Thankfulness is something we can practice every day. However, sometimes we allow things like our circumstances, comparing ourselves and what we have to others, and focusing on the wrong things, distract us from seeing the goodness all around us.
Let us remember, “God is in control, and therefore in EVERYTHING I can give thanks - not because of the situation but because of the One who directs and rules over it.” – Kay Arthur
Below are six scriptures from the bible to remind and inspire your Attitude of Thankfulness today and every day.
