Review: “I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.”
195) “Love is the way I walk in gratitude.”
Love is the creative motor and so are the other fruits of the spirit: joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Gal. 5:22, 23). Following these signposts will lead you on the path away from confusion, worry and anxiety. And then, gratitude will well up quite naturally, for it is the most logical response imaginable.
You do not have to work at gratitude. But do work on recognizing the thoughts that lure you away from kindness and gentleness, and on seeing them for what they are: old tapes playing, the monkey mind in action. These thoughts do not define who you are and have no claim on you whatsoever. You owe them nothing.
