Giving Thanks to God

Thanking God for all his goodness with us is an expression of the grateful heart. Giving thanks to God changes all things, changes us inside and transforms our outer atmosphere.

Thanking God for all his goodness with us is an expression of the grateful heart. Giving thanks to God changes all things, changes us inside and transforms our outer atmosphere.

The Bible says in Psalm 100:4

Enter His gates with a song of thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, bless and praise His name.

Source

The Bible urges us to thank God at all times. We must always enter his presence by thanking him.

There are two things that denote our thanksgiving. First, we manifest our total dependence on God. Second, we express our gratitude to Him for his works in our lives.

Giving thanks is a way to praise God. And according to the Word of God we can do it in many ways. How we can do it?

  • Signing
  • Praying
  • Giving to others
  • In all circumstances
  • With our brothers and sister in the faith

Why are you grateful today? What reasons do you have to thank God, not in a given season, but at all times?

May our hearts, thoughts and actions always manifest the gratitude we have for God and his wonderful works.

Patterned Paper and Faith Journals

During these past months I’ve been working with prayer journals and bible verse journals. One of the things that I use the most are the patterned papers or scrapbook papers. They are great to decorate and personalized almost every craft project.

I wrote a post about how to make a prayer journal (that you can read here). I am still working on that journal, where I wrote my prayers and those prayers that have been answered by God. Also, I started a bible verse journal. Where I write my favorite bible verses or those verses I am studying.

Now, how do I use the papers and where do I find them?

First, I use them as backgrounds in my pages, as tabs, as tags and to journal in them. There are tons of uses for scrapbook paper!

I find papers in different places like:

Creative Market – I use those digital scrapbook papers you can buy (or free), I printed out and use them in the journals.

Yarisi & Co – This is an Etsy Store, specilized in stationery, envelopes, greeting cards and more! But, there is a assorted paper pack that is my favorite! It comes with different sizes, patterns, envelopes, tags and more! Perfect for journals!

Pinterest Search – You can make a pinterest search for digital scrapbook papers and you will find plenty of options. Again, you will need a printer.

Local or Hobby Stores – I know there is a few stores that you can find a variety of scrapbook papers. You can visit the store or buy online!

The possibilities with scrapbook papers are endless. I love to work with them in my faith journals. You should give it a try!

Bible Verse Journal

I love journals! I’ve been during these days working on a special journal. One about bible verses. I found out it’s like therapy to me, to create, decorate and study my favorite bible verses all at the same time. Here is a little bit about what I’ve doing.

Bible Verse Journal

Journaling is part of my life. I always love to take notes, record memories and thoughts. I started this little journal, writing my favorite bible verses.

You can follow my account on Instagram to see more ideas! Follow Here!

I take my time to decorate every entry and I do this in daily basis. I use papers, stickers, ephemera, and much more. I give some space for creativity. Then, I study those bible verses that have been a strenght for me and start writing them. These helps me with verse memorization too!

I got this small, lovely journal from Yarisi & Co, Follow Here! She has beautiful products like assorted papers, envelopes, decorated journals and more!

What about you? Do you like to record your favorite verses of the bible? This is a great idea for a gift or to have at hand a journal when you need some strengh from the Word of God.
