How often do we get caught up in grumbling and complaining? We forget to express gratitude for the simplest things we have that so many others don’t have. It is when we begin fostering a heart of thankfulness and gratitude that we start to experience the joy of the Lord…I know…I have struggled with depression. No, it’s not always as easy as that, but it is a place to start.
That’s why I really enjoyed Jenna’s post on gratitude, What I Learned About Gratitude This Year. I loved reading what she wrote…such a tender heart for the Lord…and maybe it’s because my eldest daughter is on the cusp of transitioning out of the home and onto bigger adventures…and Jenna has given this momma heart hope that her own daughter will continue to walk with the Lord…and that I ought to have such a huge heart of gratitude for the years I have had with my girl. Or perhaps it is just the reminder that it really is Because He Lives that I can face tomorrow…what a wonderful blessing.
Jenna, please be sure to grab this “I’ve Been Featured” image below and add it, with a link to this page, to your post so that your readers can celebrate with you!
