“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:9 NLT

Today's Gratitude Challenge...

Praise…setting your mind on things worthy of praise. The very foundation of gratitude is smothered in praise. Just start to start to praise God for who He is. Start to Praise Him for what He has done. The word “praise” means to give approval and admiration. It’s a form or gratitude and is committed to telling God how awesome He is whether you feel it or not. Make a list of things that you will PRAISE Him for that are currently in your life. For example…

Praise Him for the sunshine. Praise Him for the beauty around you. Praise Him for His grace. Praise Him…LIFT HIM Up higher than anything else in your mind for what He is doing today. 

It’s amazing what PRAISE can do.
