Verbalizing Thankfulness

00:00

Description

Let’s be thankful that God makes a way for us to live our lives based on truth rather than on our unpredictable feelings.

I was feeling tired and very grumpy recently, and I had no idea why. Several weeks ago I had one of those raw, edgy attitudes with lots of negative thoughts running through my mind.
On days like this, I have to make an extra effort to sit down with my Bible and ask God to interrupt my yucky feelings with His truth. As I was searching, one thought kept coming across my mind. Be thankful!
So I started listing things I was thankful for. The more I verbalized what I was thankful for, the less cloudy my heart felt. I couldn’t explain my feelings, and I didn’t understand my feelings. But, I found that verbalizing my thankfulness was the very thing that kept me from wallowing in the pit.
So, let’s be thankful that God makes a way for us to live our lives based on truth rather than our unpredictable feelings.
