Blessings Find Us, Epictetus, and Psalms 68:19 (Everyday Thanks #435)

Our thankful thought for today is this: There is a mighty difference between grumbling and gratitude. When we choose to grumble and complain, we forfeit blessings that would otherwise come our way. We distance the many good things and sometimes, even good people, that could come into our lives because we choose grumbling over gratitude. When we choose gratitude, however, not only do we find blessings, but strangely, blessings find us.

Our quote of thanks is from Epictetus. He said, “We need to regularly stop and take stock; to sit down and determine within ourselves which things are worth valuing and which things are not; which risks are worth the cost and which are not. Even the most confusing or hurtful aspects of life can be made more tolerable by clear seeing and by choice.”

Our Bible verse of thanks is Psalms 68:19. It reads, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, The God who is our salvation. Selah.”
