The Grateful

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.

He Cares!!!
