A wondrous verse to begin this Thanksgiving Holiday along with a few quotes below:

“The struggle ends when gratitude begins.” – Neale Donald Walsh

“When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, remember the teacher is always quiet during a test.” – WhoSay

“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything he has given us — and he has given us everything.” Thomas Merton

“‘Stop asking so much! My grace reservoir is running dry.’ Heaven knows no such words.” – Max Lucado

“Everything we do should be a result of our Gratitude for what God has done for us.”  – Lauryn Hill

“To trust God in the light is nothing, but trust him in the dark — that is faith.” – C. H. Spurgeon

“I’m thankful for so many things, but mostly, God. Without him, I’d have nothing else to be thankful for.”

“If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forwards, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present, gratefully.” – Maya Angelou

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of all virtues but the parent of all others.” – Cicero

“It is not the joy that makes us grateful, it is gratitude that makes us joyful.”

“A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.”

“For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence, look up at the sky, and contemplate how amazing life is.”

“Lord, I trust you and will follow you all the days of my life. I know when I hand it all back to You, You always turn my sadness into joy. Thank you, God, for my many blessings.”

“I have too many flaws to be perfect. But I have too many blessings to be ungrateful.”

“Sometimes I just look up, smile and say, ‘I know that was you, God Thanks!’
