Having an attitude of gratitude does not mean that we are always happy, it means that even when we are not happy, we are still thankful. On this side of eternity, all of us will experience sadness, anger, pain and frustration. However, in the midst of these negative emotions, we must never lose sight of the fact that God is Sovereign. This means that even when our lives seem to be spiraling out of control, we can trust that He is holding every challenge, every doubt, every obstacle in the palm of his Mighty Hand. He is faithful.
Having an attitude of gratitude does not come naturally, it takes practice and intentionality. What does your attitude reveal about you?
