Always Be Grateful

Always Be Grateful

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds (NIV).

Psalm 9:1

We live in a society where you don't see gratefulness every day. People seem to be complaining about something constantly. Things have become so fast-paced all around us that it's challenging to slow down and embrace the beautiful things right in front of us. But that's exactly what God has called us to do. If we ask for His help in prayer, He will help us take the time to see and appreciate all of the blessings that He has filled our lives with.

We often go through life chasing a big dream, sacrificing so much along the way. When we finally get there, we realize that we have missed all the important things in life. It becomes clear to us that what we considered the small things were actually the big things all along. Everything that we need in life was really there all along. We spend so much time looking towards the future that we can't see how much God has blessed us today.

Recognize those blessings that God has filled your life with, and share them with others. Help others to see the things they should be grateful for in life. All of these things point back to the Lord and inspire us in our faith. God helps us to reset our priorities and find meaning in the everyday occurrences in our lives.

Living life with a grateful heart opens us up to abundant peace, love, and joy. This life is the kind of reality that God desires for us to experience. When we invite God into our hearts.
