Bible-inspired gratitude during challenging times
This year has been unlike any other in recent history. We’ve been confronted with a global pandemic, economic crises, extreme weather events, polarizing elections, separation from loved ones, and more. It can feel hard to find things to be grateful for.
However, through my practice of Christian Science, I’ve found that gratitude plays an important role in helping overcome not only negativity, mental heaviness, and fear but also illness.
The kind of thanksgiving I’m talking about is more than just a gratitude list (as helpful as that can be). It’s acknowledging the supremacy and infinitude of God, divine Love. When my gratitude flows from this standpoint, I’m filled with awe and humility about God’s existence, presence, and power. A big part of this kind of gratitude is expressing thanks for the continuity of good now and in the future.
