An Attitude of Gratitude

An Attitude of Gratitude

   Kayla Rodgers Bruno
   2 November 2018

 

“Gratitude exclaims, very properly, ‘How good of God to give me this.’” C.S. Lewis

Keeping ourselves with a heart posture of thankfulness, or an “attitude of gratitude,” can be very difficult, especially when society has a culture of comparison. Our attention is constantly directed toward things we don’t have and people who have experiences we don’t

If we’re not intentional, our focus is easily misdirected onto these things. Often, the Lord gently will remind me to put my focus back on Him and to let Him guide my thoughts.

When our Heavenly Father is at the center of our thoughts and we’re allowing Him to guide our mind, thankfulness starts to grow naturally. Gratefulness is the inevitable fruit of when our hearts are centered on Him and our spirits are pliable to His purposes

When we look at God, really behold Him and all He has done for us, it’s hard to stay unthankful. James 1:17 says, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”  Take a moment to really focus on God. Think about all the ways He has blessed you, and thank Him for it. Ask Him to direct your focus.

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17
