Do you live gratefully? Truly, do you? Grateful. Everyday. Through every trial and every celebration.
It’s easy to be grateful when life is going well. But it’s also easy to forget to be grateful to God for the blessings. We often get a bit cocky when life is going well and start to think it’s about us and what we are doing. Don’t forget from whom the blessings reign.
When something gut wrenching happens... you lose your dream job, you stumble with your sobriety, you break a great friends trust, you lose a relationship, you yell at your kids, experience the death of a parent, friend, child....do you stop and thank God? Sounds weird huh. Why thank God for that?! That’s the last thing that probably crosses your mind. But what are these experiences teaching you? What are you learning from the pain? There is always a bigger lesson in all of our experiences. At least that’s what I believe. We are stronger and more prepared for life based on our past, our experiences. The pain has to be for something! In the midst of the storm, try it. Thank God for your pain and ask that he reveal the lesson. Thank Him for the promise we all have in him, and trust that his plan is larger and greater than anything we can possibly imagine or see.
