Day 27~ Progress Report!

Scripture Reading: 1 Timothy 4:11–16

    about the typical events of daily life?
  3. (3)  Would others describe me as a thankful person?
  4. (4)  What evidence is there that I have a grateful or an ungrateful spirit?
  5. (5)  How often do I begin statements with these words: “I am so thankful that . . .”?
  6. (6)  Do I more frequently display a pessimistic, negative outlook or a positive, grateful
    perspective?
  7. (7)  Am I reserved or eager when it comes to expressing appreciation to others?

Life Application:

How are you doing in your gratefulness challenge? I know I got off for about 2 weeks and I'm just now getting back on schedule with the daily blog posts. I've told myself I'm not going to attempt to write daily blog posts anymore unless I get them all scheduled and written before I post them. But how about you? Have you learned anything from this gratefulness challenge? Have the daily (while, not exactly daily;) posts encouraged you at all? If so, Please leave me a comment and tell me how you've been impacted from this series. I'd like to do more encouraging posts on this blog, but only if you're being encouraged as a result. So please leave me a note and tell me what you think about this series! Thank you SO much for taking the time to read my posts. This blog wouldn't be here without your support and encouragement.
