Grateful Heart

Grateful Heart

Many of us associate blessings only with material things. When we don’t have the things we want, we feel God has forgotten us but nothing could be further from the truth.

It’s easier to praise God when we live in abundance and it’s hard to worship Him when we live in scarcity. With all that’s happening in the world right now, I know many of us find it hard to see our blessings. I know it’s normal to be scared during this time but I realized, this is also the best time to exercise gratefulness. Our situation is not easy but there are so many things to be thankful for. I’m also still growing in this area.

Gratefulness does not rest on what we have. Gratefulness is a condition of the heart. It is thanking the Lord because we know that no matter what happens, He is good. When I read and watch the news, it seems that there is something new every day that threatens people’s lives. We may not understand what’s happening but we must continuously trust God. He sees the bigger picture and He is in control. No man or disease can change God’s plan.

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
