Am I Grateful?

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. Luke 12:29-30

In recent posts I told you how I turned to food which was a false god, to heal my aching soul. I shared how I used to spend months filled with fretting over finances to make sure we could pay our bills and have enough food for the family. I shared how I hoarded food, as well. Christ showed me that all I need to do is to turn to Him in all things and He will provide for us, but am I grateful?

I get caught up in my daily life and do I thank the Lord that I live in a country with freedoms that others don’t have? I get caught up in my daily life and do I thank the Lord for plenty of food to meet our needs and then some when there are others who hunger? I get caught up in my daily life and do I thank the Lord for healing my self-esteem when there are others who feel unloved?  I get caught up in my daily life and I thank the Lord for allowing me the opportunity to share my shortcoming with you to do His work in the lives of readers.

I need to be much more Grateful Christian for all God does for me each and every day. I am truly blessed! Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? Luke 12:24 

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
