017: Spiritual - The Power of Gratitude

Gratitude is powerful! This word is derived from the Latin word “gratia” which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness. When we’re fully aware of the grace we’ve been given in Christ, we can’t help but be full of gratitude and gracious toward others. Psalm 136:1 says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” In this episode, we explore the effects of gratitude and how each of us can practice this positive habit daily.   This episode’s Godly affirmation: “I’m grateful for the gifts God blesses me with each day.” “Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.” – James 1:17 (The Message)   Links and Resources Mentioned in this Episode: Article based on research that Gratitude can actually have positive effects on overall health - https://www.health.harvard.edu/healthbeat/giving-thanks-can-make-you-happier Caroline Leaf’s book “Switch on Your Brain” - https://www.amazon.com/Switch-Your-Brain-Happiness-Thinking/dp/0801015707 Shelley’s “The Gratitude Journal” book - https://www.amazon.com/Gratitude-Journal-Challenge-Relationships-Greater/dp/1946118087 YouVersion Plan on Prayers of Gratitude - https://www.bible.com/reading-plans/13353-5-prayers-of-gratitude Free Lettering Resources: yourcreativeadventure.com/free Free Art of Prayer eBook: http://yourcreativeadventure.com/artofprayer/ Instrumental music used in the podcast is titled “My Loving Kindness” by Tammy Sorenson.
