The Gratitude Project – Unexpected Upgrades



Gratitude changes everything! Let’s change the world together!

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.”

Psalm 100:4

Today, I’m grateful for unexpected blessings! 

Most of us are spending more time home than we’ve ever spent before. We’re sheltering in place, self-quarantined, working from home, doing home schooling, bouncing off the walls, binge watching, living in a social media world, care giving or alone with our own thoughts.

I want you to do more than survive COVID-19, I want you to thrive! Unplug your digital devices for a minute. Create space where you will not be disturbed. It’s your Gratitude Spot.

The Bible says “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name”. Every time you go to your Gratitude Spot … go there with a heart of thanksgiving. Praise the Lord out loud. It will change the atmosphere where you live. Bless the Lord on your way there and on your way out.  Watch the things that hinder your future shrink into the shadows.

Stroll down memory land with me today. Listen to this message and initiate a season of intense prayer and watch God work in your life…unexpectedly!

Today, I’m grateful for unexpected blessings! Today I’m grateful for you and your desire to  enter his gates with thanksgiving and into an intense period of prayer in your Gratitude Spot.

Let us pray:

Jesus, may nothing you have assigned me to do this day, or any day, be lost ~ may I faithfully execute all you desire and have designed me to fulfill.  In Jesus name, Amen.

Share what you’re grateful for today in the comment section!

Send this message to someone who needs a word of hope to penetrate the fog of fear. Let’s see what unexpected blessings God has in mind for us all.

Mornings can be challenging! There are loud alarms, buzzers and ring tones that can be hazardous to your sanity. They are however, a necessary means to rise and shine on time.

There is the dressing and pressing your way through a morning matrix that includes but is not limited to becoming conscious, coherent and centered before facing rush hour, co-workers, neighbors, public transportation, meetings, reports, housework, kids, car pools, schedules, assorted personalities who live with or near you and breakfast. What’s breakfast?! It is just so much to do in so little time.

A great way to start your day is with a spiritual wake up call. This Is Your Wake Up Call is a stimulus package of word, wit and wisdom. It is delivered on line straight to the heart, mind and soul to help jump start your day.
