It’s almost November, ya’ll!!! I can hardly believe it. However, the fact that my kids were asking for candy at breakfast quickly confirmed, it’s true.
We will blink our eyes a few times, and it will be Thanksgiving day. Here’s the thing, I want to really be thankful. I want to really give thanks to the Giver. I want to give back.
Here’s what I don’t want to do: get stressed about things or miss out on the slow, simple gifts that he’s placed right at my feet.
I want my kids to know what this season of gratitude is all about, and to know the Giver.
So, I made this scripture writing plan: Simply Thankful. (We did this 2 years ago here at Refocused and I want to do it again!I hope you join us!)
It’s a simple plan:
Write out the verse of the day.
Thank God for one thing.
Do one simple, slow activity a day to enjoy the Giver. (take a walk, pick flowers, gather leaves, bake muffins, etc.)
Give back from an overflow of God’s love & as an act of worship.
I’ll be sharing on the Facebook Group (Link here: Refocused Bible Study FB)
I’ll also be sharing on my Instagram account and twitter.
Download the simply-thankful plan and make gratitude intentional in your heart and home this month! ￼
A Psalm for giving thanks.
1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
