3. Joy Arising Through Gratitude
Light the candles.
Read Psalm 100
“The Lord is good and his love endures forever.” We have many reasons to celebrate because of God’s unfailing, merciful, gracious love. When we consider ALL of the blessings we have from God, our hearts DO rejoice and praise God- and we feel abundant joy in doing so! I imagine God delights in our praise and joy , because God knows we are appreciating and accepting God’s gifts, so freely and generously given.
Begin naming the blessings you have received from our generous God of love. Write a note of thankfulness and joy to God in response for all you have been given.
