Psalm 107:1 Give thanks to the Lord
Have you felt distanced from God, and you want to see His hand in your life more often? Gratitude is the fastest way to change your heart and draw nearer to God. It might seem like a simple thing, but a grateful heart will be softened. If you want to be ready for God’s guidance, then you need to make sure that you are developing an attitude of gratitude.
When things are hard… how do you feel grateful if everything seems terrible? It is easy to get caught up in the frustrating experiences that you have each day, especially when you feel like everything is going wrong. A bad attitude can lead to bad experiences, which has a domino effect to impact every other area of your life.
Instead of getting caught up in these negative patterns, look for ways that you can find gratitude in the moment. Feel grateful for the experiences that are helping you learn. Find gratitude in the health and wellness that you experience each day. Look for relationships that bring joy and gratitude into your heart. Savor a sip of your favorite beverage and feel grateful that you can enjoy the delicious taste. Listen to your favorite song and feel gratitude for the fun moment of dancing and singing in the car.
By practicing gratitude daily, you will transform your attitude which has a direct impact on the experiences that you have each day. Let gratitude change your heart, and you will be in a space to work closely with God in order to create the life that you desire.
