Gratitude, the Master Facilitator

Making the choice to be grateful is one of the greatest choices that I can make each day to facilitate the kind of life I long to have.

Gratitude is the quality of being thankful, the readiness to show appreciation for something.

To facilitate something is to make an action or a process easier.

Gratitude is a facilitator.  When I choose to be grateful, most, if not all, of the rest of my life becomes easier. 


  • lifts my spirits.
  • gives me energy whereas a discontented heart drains energy reserves.
  • helps me to see what is right with the world instead of being dragged into negativity by what is wrong with the world.
  • shows me the strengths of the people around me rather than their weaknesses.
  • lifts me up above my less-than-ideal circumstances to see the possibilities in my circumstances.
  • helps me to see the humor in the “everyday” of my life, and laughter is the best medicine!
  • allows me to see God’s redemptive work in and all around me.
  • helps me to focus on the answers that God has given me instead of becoming frustrated about the answers I haven’t received.

I’m sure there are many more things that never cross my mind that gratitude does as well.  It’s a master facilitator!

Choosing gratitude daily is one of the fastest routes I can take to a life full of peace, joy, hope, and love.  This one choice that I am presented with every day can facilitate so many good things that I want in my life. 

Making the choice to be grateful; it’s a choice I need to make every day!
