A person with a thankful heart recognizes waking up to a new day is a blessing. It is a gift from God.

He praises the Lord instead of complaining. He knows people are praying for the things he has and that his circumstances could be worse. 

A person with a thankful heart has joy. The joy of Jesus.

He tells the Lord, "Thank You." Not only because of stuff or for what the Lord has done does he thank Him, but just because of who He is.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands. Psalm 92:1-4

Happy Thanksgiving!

Be blessed.
