There are always two ways to look at things: as a blessing or a burden. Every blessing can be seen as a burden, or every burden can be seen as a blessing. When we learn to praise God for the burdens as well as the blessings, He blurs the line so we can no longer tell the difference. Gratitude opens the door to Jesus’ opinion on things. Gratitude liberates the weight of burdens to become the sweet, light and easy yoke of a blessing.
“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.”
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Corinthians 5:16-18
Let your burdens become blessings. Don’t let your blessings become burdens.
