Gratitude Is From Grace

I have a friend who did not like the first half of his life. 

The thing is . . .  most of what he wanted . . .  seemed to be out of his reach.  

He will be the first to tell you that he tried everything to make life better; however, he could not seem to be get beyond it all.  

One morning, about half way through his life, he stood at his bathroom mirror and  took a long look at himself.  In that moment, he  decided to be grateful for where he was at and what he had. 

He made one simple change:  He thanked God every. single. day. 

One day he realized he liked his life. 

He realized he had not believed God had blessed him as God blessed others.  

Gratefulness led to believing he was blessed with more than he could have ever imagine. 

Gratefulness is an element of God’s grace.

2 Corinthians 12:9 says:  My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness . . .” (NIV).

Through the grace of God, we receive the strength of gratitude. 

It’s enough to turn everything around, to see the bigger picture and to know God is God.

Thank God every. single. day. 

It matters.

Word . . . 

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”  (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NIV)).
