Thanks for Tomorrow

I think I heard this in a sermon, and I don't remember where the pastor heard this, but it's been stuck in my head for months:

What if you woke up tomorrow and the only things you had were the things you were thankful for today?

This hits me every time I think about it. It makes me more thoughtful about the things I thank God for when I pray. I always thank God for my family, for the roof over our heads, the blessing of my husband's job.

But how often do I thank him for specific friends? Or my health? Or my salvation?

I would totally make this post longer, but I don't think it needs to be.

What do you need to thank God for today, just in case it's all you have tomorrow?


  1. Oh this is so good and you know what? It's EXACTLY what I needed to read.

  2. LOVE this, Rachel! I tried to comment from my phone the other day, but apparently it didn't go through. lol. ANYWAY... the day I actually READ it, I really needed it! So well said!

    1. Ah, technology. Makes our lives so much...easier? :) Glad you needed it---so did I!

  3. I needed to read this today. I have been in a bit of a "slump" and gratitude is pulling me back out day by day. Thanks for this!


I wrote the thing. You read the thing. Don't be too lazy to comment!
