Gratitude is important to God. Getting up with a grateful heart sets my mind that no matter what happens, there is something to be grateful for. Just the thought of the goodness of God, brings a spirit of gratitude. I didn’t have to be here today. Reflection of the many times that the enemy tried to take me out and he couldn’t because God was in charge. “What then shall we say in response to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 (BSB)
That said, gratitude helps with contentment and the Bible says godliness with contentment is great gain. My heart is filled with gratitude as I make the transition from the corporate world to God’s purpose for me full time. Teaching, writing and photography are now my focal points. There are learning curves in all of these things but I am excited. The new leg of my journey is for real.
Today, I just want to offer encoragement to you to keep your eyes open for what God wants to do in your life. I believe that gratitude keeps us grounded. In that gratitude to God, there is an escape from the traps of the world when it comes to our dreams. God has not forgotten you. No matter your age you have not been forgotten.
