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?

  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!
