Let the Good Book put you in a good mood.
We've all heard the word "gratitude." It is used to express thankfulness and praise. It refers to the quality of being thankful and a readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Throughout life's trials and blessings, displaying a general attitude of gratitude distinguishes the Christian, but it also makes you a lovely person to be around! Practicing gratitude actually increases dopamine in your brain (the stuff that makes you feel good!) and encourages your brain to seek more of the same. So, scientifically speaking, the more you are grateful for, the more you will find things to be grateful for.
We've collected these Bible verses to get you started. You may also want to read gratitude quotes from other sources, self-care quotes, or Bible verses about being thankful. However you want to do it, you can find peace and joy through prayer and gratitude. When we pray and give thanks to God, even when it's hard to, we are promised to be given grace and faith. Read over these during times of distress, sadness, or any time of the year to strengthen your heart, improve your outlook, or just make a joyful noise. We hope these verses continue to inspire gratitude in your own heart.
