Gratitude Grows when we start to realize that God NEVER gives up on us!
The truth is, even in our worst moments, God has never stopped believing in us. God has had His eyes on us and His heart set for us. Sometimes, however, life leaves us feeling as if God isn't even there. Even when we have created our own messes and issues, we still wonder where is God. We don't feel Him and certainly don't see Him. But, I believe that it has more to do with where our eyes are focused, than where God is.
Throughout History, God has ALWAYS been looking for us. He has ALWAYS been pursuing us. And, He will NEVER give up on us! The book of Jeremiah displays that even thousands of years ago, when God's people were far from following Him, He was still there.
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” -- Jeremiah 31:3
Understanding that God will not give up on you will enable you to not give up on others. Take a few minutes to thank God that He NEVER gives up on us!
