Joy Amplifiers

Counting your blessings grows your joy, joy scriptures

It all began with a simple question -

what are you thankful for today?

A few years ago Luke and I were challenged to find 5 things we are thankful for each morning. At first it was a TOTAL chore- five things seemed like a lot! But we did it for a few days, then a week, then for a month. And friends, now, each day we text each other 5 things we are thankful for – we share them with each other because it helps us both remember to do them. Luke even has an alarm on his phone in case we both forget!😊  #thisis43

We have noticed our hearts feel fuller, more blessed – less… lacking. And we noticed a few other trends as well.  Our smiles came quicker, grace flowed more freely and throwing kindness around like confetti became a normal part of life. 

Now I hear you, you are all, "all because you find 5 things you are thankful for each day?!"

YES, my friends!  It is that powerful!

A grateful heart changes my perspective on life, on people, circumstances - all for the better!

And that is why I want to see if you won't do the challenge as well:

Count our blessings

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." Psalm 126:3

Would you give it a try, for just this week? 

Find 5 things you are thankful for each day.  It can be big or small things.  Example of a few of ours: good work to do, good coffee, the birds chirping this morning, the sunrise, my favorite pen, time with friends.  Yours can be anything that makes YOU thankful.  Write them in your journal, tell them in your prayer, share them as a post or story for the day or text them to a friend or loved one. 

Maybe as you share them with a friend they will join you in this challenge and you will both be blessed with more joy!  LOVE that for you, my friend! 

And think about it: as you are filled with the Lord's joy, it is so much easier to spread that joy. 

Smiles come easier, grace flows freely, you can walk through life throwing kindness around like confetti! 

Now your whole WORLD is getting more joyful all because you took a few moments in the morning the find 5 things you are thankful for!

So, won't you join us? :) If you need a place to share, email them to us (at [email protected] ) and we will reply back with our 5 things for the day as well! Put Thankfuls in the subject line so we know it is you. ;)

Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Cheering you on and lifting you up!
