2021: Book #1

“Gritty gratitude gives thanks in all circumstances because it depends on God’s faithfulness and goodness, not on things being easy or having what we want. Most of us wait to give thanks until we have blessings in hand or think things have settled down, but the Bible puts thankful trust first. Don’t wait to give thanks until you’re happy about circumstances. Don’t dwell on what’s missing in your life. Set your mind on God and give thanks for all He is and has done. Joy follows gratitude.”

That’s a quote from “The Grumbler’s Guide to Giving Thanks: Reclaiming the Gifts of a Lost Spiritual Discipline” by Dustin Crowe.

What a powerful book.

Seriously, this is an all-time top 10 book for me.

It’s that powerful.

Crowe makes the case that giving thanks makes you joyful for the giver.

In other words, thanksgiving leads to worship.

 

I’m a grumbler but my heart craves joy.

It needs hope.

Crowe’s book is a solid biblical answer for people like me.

I’ve underlined so much of this book that I’d be doing you a disservice by only sharing four or five quotes.

 

Buy the book.

Consume it.

Live it.

A truly wonderful read.

5 out of 5 stars.

 

That’s book #1 for 2021.
