Sony’s Thoughts: An Attitude of Gratitude

I hope you all had a wonderful day of giving thanks on Thursday. I also hope you did not go back to complaining on Friday. 😉 A Christian should never cease being grateful for the many blessings our Lord pours upon us daily. Yet thanksgiving goes beyond mere words. It should well up in our hearts continually.

For myself, this has been a year of joys and trials but I choose to focus on the joys and to thank God that, even in the trials, He is changing me to be the daughter He desires me to be. I would not be who I am without the trials I’ve gone through. I’m grateful that, even in the midst of those trials, He continues to love me and to bless me and to strengthen me. I have not always walked through the fire with gratitude but I have seen Him give more grace when the burdens grow greater. Thankfully, I don’t have to bear those burdens by myself.

I give God all the glory for helping me keep an attitude of gratitude. I hope to be one who rejoices in everything–who always finds at least one thing to be grateful for. I hope you are able to do that as well. Just the knowledge that God is here fills my heart with thanksgiving. I am nobody, yet He takes the time to think about me. What a blessing that is!
