Gratitude in the Midst of Trials

Hello beautiful friends,
in this post I wanted to encourage you.

Have you been going though some hardships? In season of confusion or feelings of defeat consistently go through your mind? Have your thoughts been a bit more negative lately? Whatever season you’re going through - know that’s it’s needed. Reaching greatness is never a straight path - in order to really have what God wants for us we have to be able to go through a few hills (big or small) and remain grateful through it all. Gratitude is so important in ANY and EVERY season you’re in. Why? If we praise His name and be glad in our blessings, surely God wants to be the same way in our trials.  You may say it's crazy - God knows my heart and He gets why I'm so distant and haven't been in the Word- but sis that's not how you should think. He wants your attention MORE THAN ever now!! When you hurt, don't go to your friend, go to God. Seek God and ask Him to fill you with overflowing gratitude. Begin to speak with thanksgiving for every blessing God has given you. Stop looking at what you lost or don’t have and be thankful for whats still in your life!! 


“The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.” Lamentations 3:25 & “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” Psalms 118:1 


A prayer for gratitude: 

Father, I pray You please fill me with authentic gratitude for what the You have done for me. Remind me again of my identity in being a child of God, so that I may never wander from You. Forgive me for walking in my own ways and not committing to You all of my hopes, dreams, and desires. I ask You seek my heart, try my mind, purify me from all my anxieties so that what remains is a broken sacrifice. Thank You for being a God of mercy, forgiveness, and compassion. Your graciousness in accepting me as I am is a true gift. I honor You with my body. Continue, Lord, to fan the flame in my heart to burn brighter for You and to help point others to Your redeeming love.In Jesus' Name, I Pray Amen.
