Pursue gratitude. The grateful heart is like a magnet, sweeping over the day, collecting reasons for gratitude. Thank you, God. Your lungs inhale and exhale 11,000 liters of air every day. Thank you, God. For the jam on our toast and the milk on our cereal, the blanket that calms us and the joke that softens us and the warm sun that reminds us of God’s love. Gratitude leaves us looking at God and away from dread. It does to anxiety what morning sun does to valley mist. It burns it up!
I do love how Max Lucado words things. He has such a great way of saying things that hit true to my heart. Being grateful is a blessing.
Even at the worst of times, I've always found things to be thankful for. These are the things that make life worthwhile. It does chase away the anxieties and cares that life can bring us.
I'm filled with gratitude for words that can inspire my soul.
