As I sit here today and think about the many things I am thankful for I began to ponder my true heart. Are we truly thankful when we say it in one breath and complain in the next.
Thank you Lord for my family, but in the next breathe I complain that they are not what I want them to be.
Thank you Lord for the food you give me, but in the next breath I complain about what kind of food I have to eat.
Thank you Lord for my church, but in the next breath I complain about the people I go to church with.
Thank you Lord for my home but in the next breath I complain and desire a bigger and better home.
Our actions speak louder than our words. Our children hear the complaining and soon take on our form of gratefulness. Do you children complain and it bothers you?
Take a minute and listen to your everyday language, are they just living what they see?
A truly grateful heart speaks and lives thankfulness everyday not just on Thanksgiving!
The more time we spend speaking thankfulness the more contentment comes to our heart!
Are we really content with our lives just the way it is?
I am not talking of contentment with our walk with the Lord, because that should always be something we should never be content with and we should always be striving to walk closer and more pleasing to the Lord, but in our everyday life, Are we truly thankful?
I hope that this will provoke each of us to diligently search our hearts and see if we truly have a grateful heart today!
