As a parent, would you give your child more of something that they didn’t appreciate? (“Good parenting” & common sense says NO) If not, why would God give us more money… If we can handle our current situation? Why would He give us mortgage if we are ungrateful for our apartment?(Surely, these are random examples, insert thing you want here!) To be frankly honest, gratitude also signifies a certain level of maturity.
It’s certainly not a strange concept to even babies. However, most people develop a “GIVE ME” spirit and not a “THANK YOU” spirit. Get back to THANK YOU! It will elevate your life, primarily, because from a genuine place…it comes. You envelope yourself in lessons instead of of depression! You can crawl out of a negative place and declare: LORD I AM GRATEFUL THAT YOU DEEM ME STRONG ENOUGH FOR THIS CHALLENGE! YOU GIVE YOUR STRONGEST TESTIMONIES TO THOSE WHO CAN CARRY THE TORCH! Its not that the situation doesn’t suck, but you can CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE!
Gratitude changes your perspective. It can reshape your thinking and your activity. Lets face it, Change your mind, CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
Grateful that you took a few moments of your day to share with me!!
