Intentions for a Season of Thanksgiving
As Thanksgiving draws near, I am reminded how important the spiritual practice of gratitude is in my journey.
It is so easy to be preoccupied with all the cares of the world and my own personal challenges, that I find it essential to intentionally slow down and appreciate the good my life. This year, I decided that I would focus my efforts around gratitude as we move toward Thanksgiving.
Here are the intentions I have set, each of which is accompanied by the quote I am reflecting on as part of that intention:
I give gratitude for my existence and the existence of all life.
I position myself in a posture of gratitude and as my foundation of prayer.
All that I am and all that exists around me is enough.
Additionally, I am using this beautiful song titled “Give Thanks” by India Arie during my prayer time.
I hope you find that some of these resonate with or inspire within your personal spiritual practice.
