.....In our bible study we are learning about being grateful.... I've learned thus far that TRUE gratefulness is so very different than what I thought it was. Our challenge for this week was to practice gratitude by looking around your home (or office... or wherever you happen to be) and just name the things that you are thankful for-- imagining that anything that you fail to express thankfulness for, will just disappear-- never to return. This exercise will reveal our hearts, and unfortunately for me... how truly ungrateful I am. Take the time to be thankful for the pile of laundry-- it is evidence that you have a family. For the sink full of dirty dishes-- it is evidence that you have food on the table. For the walls that desperately need to be repainted-- they are evidence that you have a home. We will soon realize that even on our worst day we have much to be thankful for!
Let's practice TRUE Christ-centered gratitude-- it can change your life, your home... and most of all it blesses the very heart of God!
"I have learned that in whatsoever state I am in
therewith to be content."
