Curating these Christian songs on gratitude and thanksgiving has taken me to church, right here on my back porch tapping on my keyboard. And that’s the thing about giving God thanks — it’s not just for Sundays or one day in November.
Scripture tells us to speak to each other “in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Eph. 5:19-20, ESV)
God tells us to give thanks always and for everything because he knows the incredible power of gratitude.
Worshipping with songs of gratitude turns our focus from our situation to our Savior.
God is good, God is good to us and God’s goodness is at work right now for us. Our circumstances, dark or painful as they may be, can never define who God is.
Listening or singing along to a playlist of Christian songs on gratitude and thanksgiving is one more way to cultivate hearts of gratitude.
I was brought to tears several times as I created this playlist. It starts with current worship and contemporary Christian songs and finishes with modern hymns. You can find the full list on Spotify as well.
Whether you’re doing the #30daystogratitude challenge, want a playlist for the fall or Thanksgiving season, or want to worship God in thankfulness, this gratitude playlist is one to mark and listen to on repeat.
