As we look at another faith practice for today, I want to remind us all that practicing gratitude is powerful. When times are challenging, it is easy to spend all of our time looking at those challenges and forget about all of the marvelous things that God has blessed you with. Go ahead, make a list of all of the things that you are grateful for. Once you are done, thank God for all of those things. Chances are, you will feel better and more whole once you do that. Apparently, people have studied gratitude and discovered that people who regularly practice gratitude are happier in the long run. Not only do we get to be grateful, but we can be happier as well.
Go and be grateful and see what God will do in your life!!
