SUNDAY DEVOTIONAL: HEART OF GRATITUDE.

Sunday, August 17, 2014

 
Heavenly Father has truly blessed us beyond measure. God sent His only Son to die for our sins. God has given us the priceless gifts of eternal love and eternal life. We, in turn, are instructed to come before our Heavenly Father with reverence and thanksgiving. But we, as busy women get caught up in the inevitable demands of life, we sometimes fail t pause and thank our Creator for the countless blessings He has bestowed upon us. When we slow down and express our gratitude to the One who made us, we enrich our own lives and the lives of our loved ones too. Thanksgiving should become a habit, a regular part of our daily routines. Since God has blessed us beyond measure, and we owe everything to Him, we should give Him our eternal praise. 
 
"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations.
- Psalm 100:4-5

"The act of thanksgiving is the demonstration of the fact 
that you are going to trust and believe God. 
-Kay Arthur

God is worthy of our praise and is pleased when we come before Him with thanksgiving. 
-Shirley Dobson

Thanksgiving or complaining-these words express two contrastive attitudes of the souls of God's children in regard to His dealings with them. The soul that gives thanks can find comfort in
everything; the soul that complains can find comfort in nothing.
-Hannah Whitall Smith

It is always possible to be thankful for what is given rather than to complain 
about what is not given. One of the other becomes a habit of life.
-Elisabeth Elliot

The ability to rejoice in any situation is a sign of spiritual maturity.
-Billy Graham
