Take the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge with us!
For thirty days, ask God to show you the many ways He has blessed you. Keep track of what He shows you and express gratitude to Him and others daily for specific praises.
Consider using the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge Devotional from Revive Our Hearts Ministries (we’ve included Day 1 below).
Each day you will be challenged to grow in gratitude through our devotional challenges. We encourage you to keep track of what God does in your heart over this next month. Cultivating a heart of gratitude is the beginning of your journey to joy!
Day One: What’s Your Gratitude Quotient?
“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”—Colossians 3:17
I’ve often said that gratitude is learning to recognize and express appreciation for the benefits we have received from God and from others.This means constantly being on the lookout for blessings, making each day a treasure hunt. It means being intentional about thanking God and others for the blessings that come our way.
To discover your Gratitude Quotient, see which of these statements is most true for you:
I look at the world through grateful eyes and consistently express my gratitude to God and others.
I know I’ve been greatly blessed, but I don’t often stop to actually express my gratitude to God and others.
To be honest, I had not thought a lot about gratitude until starting this challenge. I’ve got a long way to go to develop a lifestyle of gratitude.
I’m a whiner! I tend to focus on my problems, and I frequently express them to others.
Scripture Reading: Colossians 3:12–17
Action Step: Confess ingratitude.
Ask the Lord to cultivate in you a more grateful heart over these next thirty days. If you have realized that your Gratitude Quotient is not what it should be, confess your ungrateful spirit to the Lord. Ask Him to forgive you and to transform you into a truly thankful person.
Pray for a Grateful Heart
Heavenly Father, I confess my Gratitude Quotient is not what it should be. Please forgive me for my hardened heart and blinded eyes. In the next thirty days, cultivate in me a grateful heart that eagerly praises You for every blessing. I choose to thank You now for all You will do!
