I began this journaling discipline as a way to train myself to give thanks in everything (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Everything is a pretty all-encompassing concept. There are still things that I am not thankful for, except perhaps in the general sense that God is using it somehow for someone. I think, though, that part of my goal is to make my thankfulness more personal with God. When I am thankful, I praise Him and I am more aware of His workings in my life. Those workings are exciting to watch.
And all that is within me, bless His holy name[!]” Psalm 103:1
