Quote: Grateful

Why do you think Israel kept messing with their blessing? Why did God painfully remind them of His presence? Because it is impossible to be grateful without grief. It is impossible to be blessed without knowing you’re broken. The need for healing acknowledges our default is hurting. Deficit must always precede thankfulness, which then leads us to joyfully obey. There is no other way.
