Lenten Meditation Song Of The Day: Hezekiah Walker & LFC– ‘Grateful’

lentGratitude makes us nicer, more trusting, more social, and more appreciative. As a result, it helps us make more friends, deepen our existing relationships, and improve our marriage.

Lent is a chance for us to reflect on the gratitude that we should have for God’s grace.

Hezekiah Walker & LFC’s ‘Grateful’ lyrics should inspire us to think of that.

I am grateful for the things that You have done/ Yes I am grateful for the victories we’ve won/I could go on and on and on about Your works/ Because I’m grateful, grateful so grateful just to praise you, Lord/ Flowing from my heart/Are the issues of my heart/Is gratefulness

Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful/Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful/Grateful, grateful, grateful, gratefulness/ Is flowing from my heart

Gratitude is the pure, appropriate response to the saving and keeping grace of God. Its opposite is ingratitude, and it can be deceptively dangerous in our lives and relationships. In the ongoing struggle of daily life—out there where feelings of disappointment and entitlement can easily talk louder than our best intentions.

If you’re sitting down to dinner, be thankful.

If you’re getting up to go to bed, be thankful.

If you’re coming out from under a two-week cold and cough, if you’re paying bills, if you’re cleaning up after overnight company, if you’re driving to work, if you’re changing a lightbulb, if you’re worshiping in a church service, if you’re visiting a friend in the hospital, if you’re picking up kids from school or practice …

Be thankful. God has commanded it—for our good and for His glory.
