November, Living with a Gratitude Attitude


Lord, give me a grateful heart in the season of joy, and in the season of tears.
When all is bright and when darkness comes.
When I want to raise my voice and when I don't feel like giving thanks.

Help me, O Heavenly Father, to live in gratitude,
Help me to long only for you and nothing else.
Your gifts bring joy while I journey under your sun,
But they cannot be compared to the  One gift you have given,
Salvation by grace, forgiveness and hope,
To be with you, to abide in you, to embrace your Word.

O Lord, help me, help me,
I don't want to set my eyes on the things that perish,
However, I am prone to be deceived by this world,
and the temporal delights it offers.

Help me, O Lord, to set my eyes on Jesus,
The Giver of every perfect gift.
The Author of my salvation.
My Lord and Saviour,
My King.

Today I am grateful for your many blessings. I thank you, O Lord, because it has pleased You to give us more than we deserve.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
