The Super Power's been a season of "walking through the dark valley" for all sorts of reasons, and I know it has been for others too. Well, it's had my heart doing some pondering...a lot of realizations. Of course, alongside all of that, it's the Thanksgiving holiday. The challenge to be grateful in all things has been on the forefront.

You know what I've been realizing?

Gratitude is a super power.

It's true. 

It's a major key to focusing our eyes...surrendering our we can see things the way God is seeing them. 

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”  ― Melody Beattie

For those who want to make a difference in this world in all circumstances...who want to know hope, peace and joy and freely give those things from a full's a necessary discipline and delight. What an asset!

Another infusion that comes from choosing gratitude?


"He inhabits the praises of His people."

Gratitude helps us sense the intimate presence of the Father. In gratitude we see that we are not alone...that, in fact, He is so very near. hope for us all this Thanksgiving is that we would be able to be grateful from the heart...and see the super powers unleashed in our lives. :)
