I’m a big fan of the grace and works tension. I like to explore it, talk about it, roll around in it, and most of all – I like to apply it to my life on a regular basis. We know that God’s grace is what compels us to shift His kingdom forward, but it’s also what compels us to put praise on our lips even when we don’t feel like it. When we apply the Good News to our lives in a moment-by-moment way, it literally changes our lives. That’s what I want to lead women to do this month.
There are a lot of reasons to be thankful this month, and there are lot of people out there encouraging you to do it. I don’t want to add to the noise but I do want to whisper in your ear, Who is it you’re thanking? And what happens when you don’t feel like giving thanks? I want to encourage you to explore gratitude in your own heart and as a result, walk a little closer to Jesus in November.
I want to see you get after it. Dig deep, as deeply as you need to. Find a way to put praise on your lips, even when it hurts. Gratitude is worship, and I’d love to hear you get loud this month. Join me on Instagram using the hashtag #getaftergrateful, whenever you feel like getting tenacious about thanking Jesus for what He’s doing in your life!
