What is "Thanksgiving"? We know it's the act of giving thanks, but according to one good book (the dictionary!), it's also "a public acknowledgment or celebration of divine goodness." Thanksgiving can be a grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors, especially to God, and in the United States, a day set apart for giving thanks to God.
The Bible is full of psalms about thanksgiving. These little poems can help change your attitude to one of gratitude or even set an intention in your day. You may also want to read gratitude quotes from other sources, self-care quotes, or Bible verses about being thankful. However you want to do it, you can find peace and joy through prayer and thanksgiving. When we pray and give thanks to God, even when it's hard to, we are promised to be given grace and faith. Read over these during times of distress, sadness, or any time of the year to strengthen your heart, improve your outlook, or just make a joyful noise. We hope these collected psalms continue to inspire gratitude in your own heart.
Psalm 118: 1-9 & 19-29
