Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy | [Nancy Leigh DeMoss]

Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself but with a lot of other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy. To not choose gratitude - daily and deliberately - is more costly than we usually realize.

Publisher's Summary

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself but with a lot of other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy. To not choose gratitude - daily and deliberately - is more costly than we usually realize.

And when we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us. By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are.

    "Great take on gratitude in our lives!!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book even though it thoroughly convicted me about my limited gratitude for all that God has done for me. I've always looked for the good in any situation, even those that are devastating because God says "all things work for good for them that love The Lord". I find myself usually thanking him for things like keeping power in a storm, good medical reports, and other daily things. BUT, do I often find myself thanking God for ALL the things in my life? More importantly, do I often find myself thanking God FOR MY LIFe---for all that he has done to purchase my eternal life through his love and sacrifice for me?

    There is a pretty thorough, and interesting description of everything that God has done for us, with practical and personal examples from the author's life and the lives of others. The book ends with a thirty day CHALLANGE, including Bible references to read, questions, and journaling suggestions. Wonderful read for everyone. Showing too, that a life of gratitude is a healthier, more joyful life than a life of whining, complaining, or depression.

    "A MUST READ"

    Nancy Leigh DeMoss does a masterful job of communicating the many facets of the jewel we call gratitude. Life changing. We grossly underestimate the power, reaches and influence of our hearts attitude, gratitude being a powerful one. We either extend and attract positive or negative energetic vibrations that are very real and powerful. The spirit of gratitude is one that is there for the taking; there for the choosing. It enriches both the giver and the receiver.

    Story
    "Fantastic Reminder of Why We Should Be Grateful"
    Would you listen to Choosing Gratitude again? Why?

    ABSOLUTELY! As in, once or twice a year!

    It's SO easy to get caught up in our negative society. Talking with friends really is just griping or gossiping anymore. News is gossip or depressing. Everything around us just shows us the horrible, depressing world we live in.

    But this book is a great reminder that, no, it ISN'T all that bad, and we have much for which we should be grateful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's like a friendly, loving, spiritual slap in the face. HEY! Snap out of your crank mood, you! Look at everything you should be grateful for!

    and then you're like... "oh yeah!"

    I like that.


    What does Christian Taylor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reader has a little Southern twang (not that that's bad), and she does a great job of reading the book in a natural way, almost as if the author was in your kitchen, telling you what she's written over a cup of tea.


    What did you learn from Choosing Gratitude that you would use in your daily life?

    I look forward to using the accompanying PDF to practice the 30-day gratitude challenge.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a Christian look at Gratitude.
