Community Feature – thewellroot

One of my new initiatives is to hear from my followers in a way that directly meets them on their journeys.

On Instagram I encourage you to tag your posts with #UnfilteredChristianWomen so I can see what everyone is up to and feature topics that they are currently thinking about or needing feedback on.

My goal will always be to write a blog post each month on a topic from my own heart BUT I also want to make room for another post that same month directly addressing a topic found via Instagram using the community hashtag.

This month I am featuring a post from: @thewellroot *

“Gratitude isn’t the result of getting what you want. It’s the result of loving what you have.”

I think it’s SO good to be grateful. So often we can fall into the trap of ME ME ME or WANT WANT WANT. Being grateful helps keep us grounded.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 makes it very clear: in everything give thanks

It’s super easy to give thanks for the good things, but difficult to give thanks in the bad. Especially in my current season of being out of work, it’s really hard. Harder than I thought it would be to remain happy and hopeful and GRATEFUL.

But gratitude changes things.

Let’s remember to enter His courts with thanksgiving today.
