November 21: Thankfulness in Times of Stress

            Gratitude is difficult to cultivate even in our happiest times, so sometimes thankfulness seems impossible in periods of stress. We ask for God’s help in expressing gratitude during the busiest parts of our year. May God guide us towards appreciation and happiness even as we cope with anxiety and exhaustion. We remember the comfort Jesus promised us through the Holy Spirit and give thanks now for this gift. We trust in the knowledge that gratitude in the most difficult times makes the sweetest offering to God and commit to an intentional practice of expressing our thankfulness.
