When I came across Nichole Nordeman's "Gratitude," I started to cry.
Because we may make all sorts of plans for our lives -- but God might not have those plans for us.
And in those cases, we have a choice: to curse him or thank him for what results.
To curse him is easier. Way easier. We can kick and scream and ask why, why, why?
Or...we can make the harder choice. We can thank him for teaching us to trust him.
That doesn't mean we don't question or express our anguish or uncertainty. I think God always wants us to be honest with him.
But it does mean approaching him with humility, with open hands.
Listen to this powerful song and the lyrics -- and be challenged as I was challenged. To be thankful in all things.
Your Turn: What are you grateful for today?
