I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and merciful. Psalm 111:1-4
Behold Your God
“There are two kinds of people in this world: grateful and ungrateful. Worshipers and whiners.” – from Choosing Gratitude by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth
Which do you want to be?
Cultivating gratitude in our lives allows our spiritual and physical eyes to be open to truly see God. We behold God more when our eyes are opened to the blessings everywhere we look.
One thing I have learned is that my attitude, my joy, my contentment and my peace of heart all are more present in my life when I am living a grateful life.
Gratitude kills discontentment.
Gratitude kills comparison.
Gratitude kills fear.
Gratitude can radically change our perspective and our hearts.
Praying the Scriptures
Lord Jesus, forgive my complaining heart and words. May I live a life of gratitude for all You’ve done for me and all I’ve been given. Remind me of the truth that when I complain I just bring my own joy and peace levels down. I am thankful for who You are, for the cross of Christ and for the freedom that He brings to my life. You are worthy of all praise.
