Just how powerful the Gratitude Attitude is, cannot be measured, but evidence proves that Gratitude is great energy. A lady who tried hard to prosper and to overcome some physical challenges experienced no change in her condition. When it was discovered that she had a complaining, ungrateful attitude toward life, she was encouraged to change that debilitating behavior to one of being genuinely grateful. Reluctant to change, she eventually agreed to give the Gratitude Attitude a try since she figured that it surely couldn’t make thing worse.
To her amazement, things did begin to change for her, first within her mind and gradually in her body and finances. Her happiness increased as she continued and was delighted with the joy, good health and increased prosperity she was now experiencing.
Gratitude is love in expression, and it causes you to live closer to God in consciousness. It helps you to stay focused on God and lifts your faith. Eric Butterworth said that you don’t really need anything to be grateful for, just be grateful! When you are, you are always delighted in how much better you feel, and your increased energy and all the wonderful blessings that show up in your life.
God provides for you, however, when you practice the Gratitude Attitude, you open the way for His rich provision to flow more freely through you into your life. Gratitude – a truly thank-full heart – is your Golden Key to the riches of God. – Lovingly, Rev. John
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gifts. – 2 Corinthians 9:15
Try this Experiment
Try this experiment today. Select one particular thing in your life that is not going well and you wish to make right. Next consider the matter in the light of your knowledge of God and of prayer. Realize that this thing cannot remain inharmonious or negative once you know the Truth about it. Realize that you are now knowing the Truth and claim that divine Power in you is now healing the condition completely and permanently.
Then give thanks. Remember that praise and thanksgiving are the most powerful prayers of all.
The next day repeat your thanksgiving until the answer comes.
In between prayers you must keep your thought right concerning the apparent problem. This is vital. All-day-long guiding of your thought cannot fail to bring your demonstration. – From: Around the Year with Emmet Fox

A gnome auditioned to conduct an orchestra.
“We’re sorry, but you don’t have what it takes to be a conductor,” the head judge said.
Undeterred, the gnome bought some new clothes and cool shoes and got a new haircut. He even bought a swank loft in the hottest neighborhood in the city. He then auditioned again and was hired on the spot.
Why? Because now he’s a metro gnome!
