Psalm 118:24 says” This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
1 Chronicles 16:34 says” O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
According to Webster’s the word gratitude means the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness: As you go about your day today, think of ways in which you can show gratitude.
1.When you find yourself in a bad situation ask yourself, what did I learn?
2. After the initial shock and your emotions has calm down ask what are you grateful for?
One of the ways we end up not being grateful is when we are treated badly. Our emotions get the best of us and we don’t see how we can be grateful? So how does one see past the pain and see the beauty of being thankful? It’s not easy to do but it can be done. You must see the hand of God despite the smoke that is in the air. The only time we do get to see the blessings is after we see how it all plays out. God is wanting us to see the blessing during the smoke. We have God’s promise and we can hold on to His truth.
Have fun with finding ways to practice gratitude today.
