Today’s word is #Gratefulness……
The term “Grateful” is an act / feeling of showing appreciation for something done or received.
Many times, we get too carried away searching for the things we think we need while on the other hand, there are things we have but have never been grateful for. Some other times, we get too comfortable requesting and requesting forgetting that the things we have are priceless and more valuable than the things we need.
A true heart of gratitude never stops given thanks for what is in his/her possession. Life is flooded with a quest to receive more, Humans are insatiable but a true heart of gratitude never stops receiving.
When you appreciate God for what you have, you are simply opening the door to receive more.
King James Version
Psalm 24 vs 1
The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell there in.
You serve a mighty God, the one who sits in heaven and make the earth His foot stool. He has everything in His possession and they are all yours but you must understand the need to appreciate the ones you have.
There are a lot of things to be grateful for:
The air you breathe
The shoes on your feet
The cloths on your back
The ability to see, hear, smell,etc
The food and drink you take in
The functioning of all organs in the body
The freedom to move your body as you want
The ability to sleep
The capacity to wake up
The projects you’ve accomplished
The seasons you went through
The lessons you learnt
The experiences that didn’t take away your life
The healing you received
The battles you won etc
We can go on and on…………..
God is committed to our wellbeing, let’s just learn the art of gratitude.
It is a conscious effort.
If you can think, you would be able to thank.
God knows your needs before you would ever ask.
Thank Him today and always.
