Be Grateful for Him

Sometimes it can be hard to feel true, deep gratitude because this world is full of wrongs. It’s hard to see good when the bad is always acknowledged and highlighted. It’s hard to see the love when we see so much hate. But we have so much to be grateful for! There is so much goodness and love in this world that God has given us, and it’s a goodness that doesn’t come from us, but from Jesus. There is no goodness without Him. His goodness is what sustains every living being. His goodness is what gives us breath. Without the goodness of God, we would cease to exist.

Be grateful that despite this rocky world, we have been given life and breath and sight and love. That we are not alone or living for no reason or purpose, but that we have a God who made us, who loves us, and who offers a way to eternal life. In Jesus, you can have paradise forever, past this life. Your only hope does not have to be in this lifetime. You can look forward to something so much better! If you think there is beauty in this world, it doesn’t even slightly compare to the place that God has prepared for those who love Him. 

{1 Corinthians 2:9}
“Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered into the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who LOVE Him.”

As lovers of God, when we awaken in the morning and drink deeply the truth of why we’re here and where we are going, it fills our heart with pure and overflowing gratitude.

HE is so much to be grateful for!
