Learn to be grateful every day...

Don't miss these new articles

Recently  my "quiet times" in the morning have felt a little  unsatisfying.  Sometimes I pray through my requests, read a Psalm or a devotional, sit still and invite God to be with me for...maybe 30 seconds...then I check that box and move on with my day. 
I’m not who I used to be. Although I accepted Christ at a young age and had times of being close to God, most of the time I just wanted to live my own life.

Through sharing my personal experiences, I hope you’ll find encouragement while you travel on your own journey. We all have stories, and you may be surprised how similar some of yours are to mine.  Although we are each uniquely created by God, there will be times when you may read a story and say to yourself, “I thought I was the only one who…”. God has been so faithful in all of my circumstances just as I am confident He will be faithful in yours. And while our burdens may not be lifted the way we pray they will, as you choose to trust God’s will in all circumstances, you will learn how to be grateful no matter what may come.

What can we do?

God’s Love Language

Gary Chapman wrote a book in 1992 called The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts. Chapman’s conclusion is that there are five emotional love languages—five ways that people speak and understand emotional love.
