Becoming grateful and thankful is an intentional effort that unites our hearts to the Lord’s good plans for our lives and produces the fruit of rejoicing in us. Truly our attitude determines our altitude!
Jesus said, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” You might think and even say, “Now that’s an impossible demand!” The world and our nation are beset by hatred, violence, tragedy and discord. Here is God’s solution to keep your heart from being troubled—“Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.— Colossians 3:14-16 NLT
