"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me." John 14:1
Sometimes, the sight of our ever changing world can cause us to have feelings of doubt, or even despair. We tend to focus on the negative around us and soon our attitudes and our speech follows suit; much like a domino effect.
It is in times like these that we need to stop, look around and realize all the things we have to be grateful for. A spirit of gratitude brings peace to the soul and joy to the heart!
“Dear children! I am calling you to a complete surrender to God. Let everything that you possess be in the hands of God. Only in that way shall you have joy in your heart. Little children, rejoice in everything that you have. Give thanks to God because everything is God's gift to you. That way in your life you shall be able to give thanks for everything and discover God in everything even in the smallest flower. Thank you for having responded to my call. ” BVM Medjugorje 4-25-1989
Lord, may the spirit of gratitude bloom within my heart. Amen
