    Although my comment maybe coming I
    late, it pleased my heart that today’s verse
    is exactly what we practiced. My family
    thanked and praised God for all He did for
    us from January to December. Even when things
    practically refused to respond to us we praised Him !
    Tough though it is but what l do is pray in the spirit
    then l discover l suddenly have a release to worship
    and thank him freely. Ladies let’s keep going !!!

    When I saw the scripture today I was a little bummed because I’ve read this passage many times and I love being “surprised” by a passage that may have been tucked in a tiny corner somewhere and reading it for the first time with fresh eyes. All if which is wrong because Gods word is living and active. But i prayed that God would show me something different and make it fresh to my eyes and im so thankful for this community because He did just that!

    I LOVE reading the comments because most the time you ladies pull different things from scripture I may not have seen. I loved what Kkshepp had to write about thankfulness being an action and a way to show gratitude. Convicting to my heart. Inside I’m thankful for certain things but my pride keeps me from giving thanks and to show appreciation (to my inlaws for example) I’m thankful this morning that you pointed this simple truth out.

    Also, Caitlin and anyone else who struggled with anxiety & contentment: I’ve been going thru a book called “Calm my anxious heart; a guide to finding contentment” by Linda follow. Amazing! Anxiety and contentment go hand in hand, ladies!!!! Check it out if your interested!

    I get the emails and You Version app but they’re never the same verse, always a few days off. Are they supposed to be?

    By those words I mean scripture.memorizing scripture.Beth Moore has published a book titled Praying God’s Word , Breaking free from spiritual strongholds. An excellent resource filled with scriptures organized under many different areas we as people struggle in.

    I have struggled with anxiouness most of my life.
    Many years back I took this to Jesus because His
    word repeatedly tells us not to worry , or be afraid .To rej
    oice, be filled with joy. He helped me understand that I must be casting down imaginations and everything that exalt itself against the knowledge of God , and bring my thoughts into obedience with the Word of God. I must renew my mind. So I began memorizing those words.when I become anxious, irritated, worried etc. I’ve learned to ask th Holy Spirit for help , He without fail brings the scripture needed to my mind. Caitlin, that is how I’ve learned to handle anxiousness. Most all those feelings and thoughts come from the enemy who constantly casts doubt on God’s character.

    Can I give thanks in everything today? Can I give thanks about 'those things' that do not fit exactly in my plan, my version of how things are 'supposed to be'? Can I do that today? Yes. I can. Giving thanks is a choice. I look at the circumstance, I look at my worry and I choose to rest in Him. He has spoken to me. He has shown me what is to come. Trusting in my Heavenly Daddy is my choice today. And I choose to give thanks.

    Saw this quote on Pinterest the other day that made me stop, think & realize that I take way too much for granted:

    “What if you woke up today

    with only the things

    you thanked God for yesterday”?

    I definitely need to remember to – Give thanks IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.
