AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

 

Thanksgiving is coming up at the end of this month.  It is one day that we dedicate to being thankful.  But think of the kind of community we would be if we became more aware of being

thankful for the things God has given us in our daily lives.  We

are called to develop a lifestyle of thanksgiving.   When I develop this attitude I am more aware that Christ is present EVERYWHERE – AT ALL TIMES – providing for us, loving us, challenging us to grow. We learn to say GOD IS GOOD!

 

When things are going well – GOD IS GOOD!

 

When things are NOT going well, can we still say GOD IS GOOD, knowing that this trial will pass and God is still present, loving me.  

It keeps us focused on our blessings and when we are focused on that, there is more joy, wonder, contentment and peace in our life!

 

How appropriate that the word ‘Eucharist’ means thanksgiving.  The Eucharist gives spiritual life and strength to those who receive it.

  -It gives courage to carry out God’s work in the world.

  -It gives inspiration to know the will of God in our lives.

  -It gives help to live the life God wants from us.

  -It gives a deeper understanding of the mystery of Christ’s             presence.

  -It gives encouragement to love others and therefore strengthens     the faith community.

  -It gives grace to overcome temptation and avoid sin.

  -It gives peace and joy of heart, knowing that one day we will     share in the heavenly kingdom.

 

And who wouldn’t be thankful for all that!
