“Happiness doesn’t lead to gratitude. Gratitude leads to happiness!”
I don’t know who said this quote, but it makes sense. It makes sense why you really can’t be happy unless you’re grateful.
Germany Kent said it well:
“Any day above ground is a good day. Before you complain about anything, be thankful for your life and the things that are still going well.”
And I love this gratitude prayer from Kent:
Father God, we thank you for your grace and your mercy, for allowing us to be together under your covenant and God we thank you for the revelations and for the breakthroughs; for your direction and for your healing. We thank you God for the opportunity to just be a vessel for your kingdom. God we trust you, we love you, we honor you, and all glory is yours. Amen!
