Monday Words for the Soul~March 10~Radical Gratitude

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Here is Radical Gratitude’s Resume:

Revolutionary change is what happens when people feel such wild gratitude for what. they. have.  —that they share it.

Gratitude never fails to radicalize the radically grateful.

When you are radically grateful for what you have, you will go to radical lengths to share it. When you are radically grateful for being blessed — you are radically generous to the oppressed.

When you are radically grateful, you live out of a place of radical abundance — there’s always more space for more to share the grace.

And don’t confuse the idea of personal pride with radical gratitude. You aren’t actually thankful for something if you think you actually earned it. That’s pride, not gratitude.

The radically grateful can never stand for injustice– because they are moved by radical grace.

You can’t know grace and not be moved. Grace starts movements.

Grace is a catalyst.

~Ann Voskamp, in this post “The One Secret for Real Change.Ann is speaking and writing for us all, Because of Grace.
