Gratitude is a heartfelt expression of thanksgiving. It is an act of worship we consciously choose to engage in.
This is however not dependent on our present state, situation or experiences.
Life may deal cruelty towards us and it may sometimes feel as though we’re alone in our desert. There may not be any justifiable reason to continue with the struggle of living sometimes.
At these times, looking up and counting our many blessings lifts us high on His wings into God’s presence; where we can feel safe, secure and ever hopeful. Moments as such bring this melody to my mind:
-For God’s eyes is on the sparrow, and I know He watches over me-
Simply making the right choice in having a heart of gratitude is the medicine needed on that desert island.
When does your life experience trigger the moment of expressing gratitude?
