Be Grateful!

Simply put, having gratitude means being thankful and while there are hundreds of different Bible verses about being thankful, I believe I Thessalonians 5:18 nails it perfectly: Be thankful in ALL circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

I get it, in the times we’re living in it’s hard to consistently show gratitude with you much evil taking place in our world. However, the benefits for showing gratitude is not a only good spirit, it’s also physically beneficial.

It’s no secret and I’ll be the first to admit that grateful people sleep better, exercise more, have increased immunity against disease, live longer and enjoy greater self-respect and better relationships. Another huge benefit for grateful minded people is that operating in the spirit of gratitude lowers frustrations, regret, and resentment.

Beloved of God, we still flow in the spirit of gratitude even in the midst of worldly turmoil, problems, circumstances, and disappointments. You see, in our daily lives we must understand see that it’s not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy. Furthermore, gratitude helps us to see what is in lieu of what isn’t!
