“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” Colossians 3:6
With the Global Pandemic that is racing in nearly every county, we realize the need for a strong immune system to keep our bodies healthy. And we need a strong spiritual immune system to keep our lives on the right track. So how do we keep ourselves spiritually strong? One of the most formidable elements in a spiritual immune system is gratitude.
When we choose a thankful attitude, our spirits resist the cynicism, discouragement, and pessimism that weigh us down. We're better able to thrive and survive no matter what life throws at us. And our love for God blooms like spring flowers.
Theologian, Henry Ward Beecher said, “The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!”
Needing a fresh burst of spiritual stamina? Remember the wonder of gratitude. You have the time so let us practice it starting today.
Father, thank You for the many blessings You bestow. Help me to see them and rejoice in them. May a heart of gratitude grow within me and create a strong spiritual immune system. In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen.
