If one of your resolutions for this year is to go deeper in your relationship with the Lord, I would like to recommend reading the book Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. It is an easy read but plenty to chew on. It will open your eyes to see how much we grumble and complain, which ought not to be a practice of the Christian. I don't believe we understand the depth of the sin that is ingratitude.
I want to be more thankful and express it to God out loud and in the hearing of others, so that His name is glorified and His works are known. I'm going to work at putting that into practice, and I'm asking the Lord to convict me when I've been ungrateful.
That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works.
- Psalm 26:7 (NKJV)
