I choose to give thanks!
I choose to give thanks, expands on the scripture, 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (KJV). This verse is well-used for various purposes including exhortation, encouragement and consolation.
Dr Chinyere Almona, shares some of her reflections on developing and leveraging an attitude of gratitude during a period of grief. She discovered that thanksgiving became her tool to deal with the roller-coaster of emotions that emerged in the wake of the sudden loss of her mum.
I choose to give thanks chronicles the route she took in her ongoing journey from the depths of sorrow to the heights of thanksgiving. She believes her experiences will help you to see that thanksgiving amidst grief is not far-fetched, it is possible and has great benefits.
If you are grieving, it is her prayer that this book will help to shorten the time you spend in the grip of grief by showing you how to open your heart and grasp God, allowing Him to lift you out of the depths of sorrow.
