31 Scriptures On Gratitude is to show you from God’s Word why it pleases His Father’s heart when we have an attitude of gratitude.
Maybe you are in a dark place in your life, and cannot think of
nothing anything to be grateful for, Lamentations 3:22-23 tells us that God’s mercies and compassion for us are new every morning and that in itself is a lot to be thankful for.
I took the time to highlight parts of the Scripture if you want to list some things you can use to tell God of your gratitude.
Gratitude is thanksgiving, appreciation, awe, and praise.
It is my prayer that while reading through these beautiful Scriptures the Holy Spirit will allow you to grasp the connection between gratitude and spontaneous worship.
