See God’s Generosity in Everything
The Power of Gratitude
Gratitude is a habit recommended by every spiritual tradition. Even scientific research has confirmed what people have known for centuries – that counting our blessings really does change our perspective; feeling thankful for all that God has given us can really change us. Gratitude impacts our inner selves. We feel better about our lives- more optimistic and enthusiastic, and yes, even more joyful.
There is no simpler prayer than to say: “Thank you God, for…” and list the things we appreciate in our lives. Following this practice can magnify our feelings of happiness and shrink our irritations. Being able to see God’s generosity in everything keeps us humble and thankful.
