Gratitude can sometimes feel like thank you letters to half-remembered relatives. We know that we should be grateful, but it can be so hard on the days when life feels unbearable – after another day of chronic illness or relationship breakdown or numbing bereavement. We try to be thankful for all things in our lives, but when things go wrong, bitterness and complaints creep in.
The Grace of Gratitude teaches us how to turn our groaning and grumbling into gratitude and gladness. Through the Israelites’ song of gratitude in Psalm 66, we catch glimpses of the God who parts the waves and whose plans are always for our good. We can learn to choose joy in the unshakable character of God and gratitude for what he has poured into our lives, no matter what the circumstances.
Paul Mallard shows us that real gratitude sings through the storms and the darkest days and is stronger than anything that life can throw at it.
