It seems too simple to be true, but to experience the fullness of God in life, we need to remember to give thanks. You can have all the theological knowledge and understanding of God and his amazing love and grace towards all His creation - but if you fail to be thankful, you're missing out. Being thankful keeps us focussed on Christ and not on ourselves. Being thankful allows us to remember all the good God has done and the enormity of our seemingly difficult circumstances reduces. Being thankful shows us that what He has done He can and will do again. Being thankful reminds us it is God's power & strength that supplies all we need and worrying does not. This talk will encourage you to live a life of thanksgiving - which literally means, to be thinking on grace.
