There is an undeniable interconnection between joy and thankfulness because that’s the way God designed it to be. May God use today’s scriptures and discussion questions to enlighten us and show the way toward greater joy.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22

Be joyful always; pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:28

What practical things can you do to cultivate a grateful heart before God?

These “Finding Glory Wednesdays” posts are an online discussion series based on the books Finding Glory in the Thorns and the companion Finding Glory in the Thorns: Group Discussion Guide by Larry and Lisa Jamieson. For more information about Finding Glory Groups, visit


  1. Don't know if you remember the song that was sort of a popular contemporary hymn some years ago now but some of the words were"when I'm tired and I can't sleep I count my blessings instead of sheep and I fall asleep counting my blessings!!I have tried it many times and it honestly works! If I start thanking God for what I have I always fall to sleep. Worrying that I don't have what I need makes me ungrateful and thankless!!!

  2. Thanks for that good, practical idea! We know the song is from White Christmas (a holiday favorite at our house). Catch it on YouTube at —
