But I think it's safe to say we tend to forget about being grateful for the whole year until November. We sprint though life grabbing onto anything that evokes a sense of happiness within us and continue to say "I want more". We long to be content but the truth is unless we are in a state of being truly grateful for what we have we will always be discontent. But the method to being happy is not just about learning not to long for anything. It is finding that something that fills us and replaces that emptiness inside with purpose. With this, no matter what life throws at us we can say "blessed be" because we know we are being held in the arms of Jesus who has our best interest at heart.
Jesus is a free gift and the amazing thing is we can be content with knowing that there isn't anything else we need.
