Focus on these experiences and encounters, helping your mind and spirit center on the goodness and generosity of God.
If you’re using a journal, consider capturing your thanks in writing, expressing words of gratitude and giving testimony to God’s generosity and faithfulness. Find encouragement and reminders of God’s goodness, and be thankful.
