Recently, I was thinking on the subject of gratitude. I always thought that the opposite of gratitude was ingratitude, unthankfulness, complaining.
God said, “You’ve got it wrong. When you get the wrong opposite you solve the wrong problem. You think the opposite of gratitude is ingratitude, but the opposite of gratitude is not ingratitude. The opposite of gratitude is worry. The reason you’re not able to praise Me, like you want to praise Me isn’t because you don’t appreciate what I’m doing in your life. It’s because you are so worried outside of the realm of your control that you can’t free yourself up to enjoy what I’ve given you. Because you are so burdened by what you feel like you don’t have.”
