Our God of every moment

People who learn to show gratitude to others are often known as happy persons.

Being thankful implies being mindful of the exchanges in process.

To ignore the art of thankfulness can be read to mean many things. Some may consider us as arrogant if we failed to show appreciation for those help they render to us.

We are mindful of the next person the moment we let them know we are grateful to them. This is one way by which we unconsciously reverse the current situation to imagine ourselves in their shoes. We could be the ones providing for or giving to others.

Embracing Christ’s perfection involves recognising He is always with us no matter what we are struggling with. This awareness depicts the sense of appreciation for the divine.

To thank our Jehovah only in the good moments while we solely come to Him for help in the bad times is a wrong attitude.

As genuine Christian, we must be humble to thank God all the time irrespective of what is going on in our lives.

God must be omnipresent in our good and bad days. We don’t praise Him when all is okay and then comes crying to Him when life gets tough.

Stop ‘Practising’ Gratitude

Today, I watched the US presidential inauguration and a sentence from the speech Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International was, “Let us not take for granted the air we breathe.”

In other words, ‘appreciate it!’ Do not suppose that you have the rights to obtaining the correct oxygen. By showing gratitude for the nonstop fresh air, you are submitting to the highest order of humility. 

Please, I besieged you, stop practising gratitude. Rather, live it! Let it be what you do; what live for. Have it be your pure sheer excitement that gratitude becomes the essential part of your daily journey. Thank everyone in your life. Thank people you come across. Thank those who furnish services to you .Show gratitude to the guy who cleaned up that gas station’s toilet you used. Thank the postmaster for delivering your letter. 

The problem with the word practicing, is that, it is often restricted. You can get bored and put aside the exercises. On the contrary, living with something or holding out for a specific reason, in the eventual, becomes part of your beautiful life. And this is what’s meant; a life worthwhile. 

I believe gratitude is more than just a requirement. It’s something that we are obligated to do. 

Overall, be thankful 100% of your lifetime. Be thankful to everything and everyone!
