What Does Gratitude Have To Do With Finding God's Will?

Do you ever struggle with figuring out what God's will is for your life? Sometimes we make discerning God's will more difficult than it has to be. In our sincere desire to carefully obey Him, we can over think things and get really bogged down in decision making.

I have good news for you! It really doesn't have to be complicated.

Let's dial it back to the big picture. I would like to propose to you that discovering God's will all starts with GRATITUDE.

IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS;

FOR THIS IS GOD'S WILL FOR YOU

IN CHRIST JESUS.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:18

Our family takes time to sit at the table and eat dinner together most nights of the week. At every meal, we go around the table and share one thing we are thankful for from that day. This is actually a form of "saying grace."

Gratitude and grace go together. As you take time to give thanks to God, grace comes to you in every area of your life. This is a definite pathway to living in peace and is the first step to finding out more specific details in regards to your destiny in God.

As Madam Blueberry says, "A thankful heart is a happy heart."

How thankful are you?
