Sometimes, it can seem to be a daunting task to have faith. To be faithful and filed with faith can require a focus that sometimes may seem to be too much of a requirement for some. Faith for me is not a noun but a verb. I always say faith is a verb. Faith requires action. Faith is a choice. Faith is a deliberate decision, a decision to think a certain way, a decision to react in faith. A decision to be grateful.
Without faith, the bible says it is impossible to please God. Faith is not a task. When we look at faith as a task it becomes a chore, a heavy burden and not a wonderful choice. I choose to look at faith as a great opportunity to serve God and my fellow man. I have found the easiest way for me to walk in faith is to choose gratitude. I choose to be grateful in ALL things. When we are truly grateful, when we start each with a grateful heart, our lives are transformed!
We can always be grateful. Just like faith, being grateful is a choice. And, when you choose heart-felt, sincere gratitude, your whole world will change. The easiest way to be grateful is to give thanks for each and everything and everyone in your life.Make a choice to live a life of gratitude and I promise you that your entire world will change. So be grateful, sincerely grateful from your heart and be kind. You will find gratitude will change everything for you.
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
Philo of Alexandria PHILOSOPHER
(circa 20 BC–AD 50)
