GRATITUDE IS GOOD FOR YOU

I’m HOME. I’m HAPPY. I’m HEALED! ! ! Aaaand I am …you guessed it…GRATEFUL!

Because of your precious prayers God healed me. Here’s what happened. First they sent a scope through the colostomy looking for the wicked fistula. Didn’t find it. Then a day later they sent a scope from the other direction and still didn’t find the dreaded fistula (google it). So the scavenger hunt was over. Where did it go? there was nothing there. God healed it. That’s what happened.

i could have been moaning and groaning but God put too many people who needed Jesus love and ministry for that attitude. I wouldn’t have been ready for what God wanted to do in that hospital with those people. Isn’t God awesome?!

It was sooo good to be home after a week in St Luke’s hospital. The nurses and staff were the best ever. I fell the second day I was there. They wouldn’t let my out of bed after that. Again. an opportunity for grumpyness and negative thinking. How would that help the situation?

I’m much more active at home. We picked up our little Rat Terrier, Sally, this morning. Boy oh boy! Did she run all over the house fifty times or more.

HAPPY? You betcha! I am sooo happy for all God has done and is doing.

I am also deeply, deeply GRATEFUL! ! !

GRATITUDE can “transform” you, your life, your body, your mind, your way of thinking and much, much more. Below are some very quick Bible word studies that will get us started.

Scriptures on GRATITUDE

OLD TESTAMENT

A tiny word study.

Modern Hebrew doesn’t have a single proper word for grateful. Rather, an expression is used that means, literally, bound by thanks – אֲסִיר תּוֹדָה (ah-SEER toh-DAH) in the masculine, and אֲסִירַת תּוֹדָה (ah-see-RAHT toh-DAH) in the feminine.

NEW TESTAMENT
The Greek word is the same for thanksgiving as it is for gratitude – “εὐχαριστία.” which means giving or saying “thanks.” Now you know.

Benefits of Gratitude

An Attitude of Gratitude

What the heck? Gratitude? Is this a Christian blog?

No. I’m not even religious. When I first started looking into gratitude, I wasn’t expecting much.

I was wrong:”

Please study this chart. It will help you enormously!

To refuse to take this information seriously is to doom yourself to a negative, dark, way of thinking and living. You will become grumpy, tired, possibly ill, and even you body will be transformed. You will be transformed in reverse.

You see, transformation is a choice. Your CHOICE!

HOW HE LOVES US SO MUCH, I do not know…

“ God so LOVED the world (people) that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him would not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:1 It is LOVE’S mystery. All we have to do is grab on to God and believe what he says, take him at His word and love him back. Please invite Him into your life right now. I would love to hear from you.
