A few notes from Choosing Gratitude byNancy Leigh DeMoss

– Spending ample time giving thanks to God in prayer deepens your understanding of Him as you realize how gracious He is in all He’s doing. Giving thanks improves our depth-perception of God.

– Jesus often stopped to give thanks to the Father. But perhaps the most profound time that He did was three times during the Last Supper. He stopped to give thanks to God three times, being fully aware the betrayal, arrest, beating, cross, and wrath that was about to occur. How much more should I be giving thanks in trials?

– There’s a difference between feeling grateful and actually giving thanks. The Scripture commands us to give thanks aloud to God, in private and in public. And it makes a difference in my joy and witness when I gives thanks aloud and not just keep it in my heart.
