Day #6

DAY #6 of the 12 Days of Thanksgiving. 

6.       Experience the presence of God through gratitude 

According to Jonathan Edwards (1746/1959) the “affection” of gratitude is one of the most accurate ways of finding the presence of God in your life. Love, praise and gratitude are the most experienced emotion acknowledging God’s generosity to us. Instead of just a simple a sentimental feeling, Christian gratitude is a virtue that shapes our emotions, thoughts and actions.

    …”The Light of My Love shines on you continually, regardless of your feelings or behavior. Your responsibility is to be receptive to this unconditional Love. Thankfulness and trust are your primary receptors. Thank Me for everything; trust in Me at all times. These simple disciplines will keep you open to My loving Presence.”
