November is the season where we focus on our blessings, a season of thankfulness. But gratitude is something we should practice every day. Did you know that studies, from cultural, psychological, physical, and spiritual standpoints, show gratitude’s stabilizing and healing effects are irrefutable? Most importantly, it is a central theme in the bible. The practice of gratitude is more than just saying thank you. It is a way of life that connects us to God by continuously focusing on the gifts we have been given and a response to a good and gracious God. It helps us to see evidence of God’s grace in our lives, even in the turmoil.
Gratitude is not only an emotion; it is something we do.
