Good morning.

Over the years we have discovered the importance of gratitude. Gratitude grounds us in the present and changes how we look after life. Having a personal relationship with God leads to a life of gratitude.

Gratitude helps us see a bigger and better picture. It helps us see what’s really going on. The good as well as the bad. The moments of joy as well as the moments of sorrow. The successes as well as the failures. The rewards as well as the rejections.

What we have learned about being grateful is that one cannot be well without it. Without gratitude we end up being miserable - not getting what we want doesn't see what we have. We become truly grateful when we can say “thank you” to all that has brought us to the present.

Paul writes: "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 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 3:15‭-‬17)

Today we can demonstrate an attitude of gratitude to those around us. Let's do that with thanksgiving in our hearts to our awesome Father.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
