LIFE OF GRATITUDE
June 13, 2019
Gratitude is a feeling of being thankful to somebody for doing something. A life of gratitude always is a commandment from God that everyone must adhere to. God wants us to be appreciative at all times, no matter the circumstances around us. 1 Thessalonians 5:16 says, “Rejoice always”, verse 18 says “In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” God wants us to rejoice in everything be it good or bad; season of abundance or lack; when you are healthy or sickly; when you are with companion or alone; in success or failure; in gain or loss; in comfort or discomfort; in peace or war etc.
Gratitude is when you choose to sing in the midst of life’s challenges instead of secret anger to God. It is when you choose to laugh, when you are having in-depth pain in your heart. It is when you choose to praise God instead of grumbling or cursing Him. Gratitude is when you choose to radiate God’s beauty in the midst of ugly events around your life. Gratitude provokes joy, while joy provokes lively mood always. Happiness does not make you grateful; it is gratefulness that makes you happy in life.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life, it makes the little more than enough, it turns denial to acceptance, chaos into order, anxiety to calmness, it turns dead situation to lively situation.
Stop complaining about what you cannot do. Stop grumbling about what you do not have. Stop agitating on what you do not have control over. Instead always be in the mood of gratitude. Complains complicate issues more than your expectations, grumbles enkindle God’s anger against the grumblers. Always count your blessings and not your bleedings
