Choosing Gratitude Day 13

Day 13

Psalm 43:1–5

The Psalms are a good place to camp out if your 

heart’s desire is to be grateful—though not because 

they’re filled with nothing but happy, upbeat 

sentiments. They vibrate with every emotion known 

to man. They speak of back-breaking pressures, 

deep valleys of depression, and times when life barely 

seems worth living. And yet the Psalms reveal that 

the only ultimate answer to trouble, grief, pain, and 

loss is a constant returning to God in worship and 


Even in the darkest night, you can still experience His 

peace and rest, knowing that the joy of morning is 

ahead. Resolve not to let your joy level be 

determined by the presence or absence of storms

but by the presence of God. Choose to be joyful in 

Him today.

Choose a few psalms to read throughout the day 

(aloud if possible). See if they don’t cause praise and 

thanks to well up in your heart.

I love the psalms and try and read some everyday, same with the Proverbs.

Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to Lord, for He IS good! For His mercy endures forever. Ps. 106:1

Some of my favorite Psalms, 40, 42, and 61.

What are some of your favorite Psalms?

For His Glory,
