The act of practicing gratitude daily has changed my life in a big way. It began when I started keeping a Blessings Journal during what turned out to be one of the most difficult years of our lives.
When I started seeing what a difference it made, I decided to research Bible passages on gratitude. Here are a few that I found. I hope they encourage you to choose gratitude!
