Who can believe that we are heading into the holiday season already? Wasn’t it just summer yesterday?
As time marches on, it’s sometimes hard for us to keep up.
We start the year with incredible plans and lofty goals.
But then life happens.
The kids get sick. Work piles up. Your health falters. Spouses disappoint. Friends get too busy. And you’re left wondering if you can actually make it to the end of the year with your sanity intact. You’re simply running out of steam.
There really is a better way. Because I am convinced that Jesus never meant for us to go through the motions living life on empty.
That better way, begins with a grateful heart.
And if you’re even just a bit doubtful and you’re wondering how gratitude can give you the boost you need, well, this is for you.
Over the next week, I’m teaming up with my friend Lori at Searching for Moments to bring you a mini-series that’s all about giving thanks. Lori is a weaver of hope and a woman on fire for God who’s on a mission to inspire and build up. Together we are going to encourage and equip you to activate the weapon of gratitude so that you live a brilliantly full and hope-filled life!
The #GratefulHeart is a mini-series of four posts spanning two blogs, Lori Schumaker’s Searching for Moments and my SunSparkleShine. Through it we will provide ideas, encouragement, prayers, and Bible verses that will equip you in the cultivating of a grateful heart.
The series runs from November 10-17:
- 11/10 Thursday – Series Intro on Searching for Moments
- 11/14 Monday – Moments of Hope Linkup on Searching for Moments
- 11/15 Tuesday – Lori guests posts here on SunSparkleShine
- 11/17 Thursday – The series wraps up on both sites with some fun surprises
We’d love for you to join us by visiting on the days mentioned and by sharing your own #GratefulHeart stories on social media.
Each day, please take a moment to share just one thing that you’re grateful for.
Is your heart overflowing with gratitude? Then feel free to share a little extra love to motivate the rest of us.
