A Joyous Way To Show Gratitude

October 8, 2012

My favorite song of this Fall so far is “Good To Be Alive” by Jason Gray. It is a very inspirational song about “living like there’s no tomorrow and loving like I’m on borrowed time”. I strongly suggest you give it a listen if you haven’t heard it already. I will include a link to the video at the end of the article.

There is another part of the song that I hadn’t noticed at first, but really struck my attention after the last time I heard it. It says, “all I want is to give you a life well-lived to say thank you”.

What a great way to say thank you to God for all he has given you. I love the message of this line. You can say thank you simply by living life to the fullest and being the best you can be each day.

I realize it is difficult for every day to be a great one. However, I can tell you from experience that the more you try to live joyfully each day, the more it actually plays out. And when you say thank you to God by living joyfully and adding to the joy of others, you will receive abundant blessings from Him. You will also see them with greater frequency.

The bottom line is that there’s a choice each day. You can allow obstacles and negativity to steal your joy and complain about all you don’t have. Or you can live joyfully and fully in gratitude of this wonderful life you have been given, enjoying the blessings each day. In my opinion, it’s an easy decision to make.
