Gratitude is a choice which we can make every day, under every circumstance. We are told, in the Bible, to give thanks IN all things. (Not, necessarily FOR all things.) This means that when something/someone we love passes, rather than living in sadness because of the passing, we can be grateful for the experience of having had it/them in our lives. We are told, also that God uses ALL things for good. Ergo, in the most painful, uncomfortable, frustrating circumstances, we can give thanks, IN ADVANCE, for the Good that God will bring to pass from it! The word Gratitude is based on the word, “Grace,” and God’s grace is everywhere, in everything. Choose to live in this Grace!
