The Art of Gratitude

"That my soul may sing Praise to You and not be silent, O Lord, my God, I will give Thanks to you Forever." Psalms 30:12 (NASB)
Gratitude, is the practice of being thankful. It can be found in every aspect of our lives. We are blessed everyday by a Divine God that gives us everything we need to make it through the balances of life. As we live, appreciating the beauty that constitutes life will cause us to enjoy the journey of it even more. Life is never a destination, it is merely the experiences that we have along the way that cause us to reflect and show gratitude to the Divine who is in control of it all. He has created our life experiences to be a testiment of his glory to others.
Take a moment today to reflect on the beauty of your life, where you are, where you have been and where you are going. The experiences that have made your journey unique, not only the good, but the tough ones are designed so that appreciation can be seen in the beauty of the good times. What are you grateful for? An attitude of gratitude is one that brings light to any situation that it faces. It delights over the silver lining in the rainclouds of life and most importantly appreciates The Divine that created them.
Prayer: Lord, show me the beauty of my life in every aspect, cause me to appreciate the experiences of it for what they were and will be. For with you, I can conquer all things. Bless me with an attitude of gratitude.
