“Bring my soul out of prison so that I may give thanks to your Name.” (Psalm 142:7)
Being ungrateful is a result of being held in the cell of despair and the confinement of deception. When we live only by what we see in the present rather than all He has promised, we slam the prison door on our hopes and throw the key away.
God is ready for you to ask Him to help you make a prison break! When Dorothy was told all she needed to do was to click the heels of her ruby red slippers three times and repeat the phrase “There’s no place like home”, it must have seemed all too simple… yet she did it and it worked!
Could it be, that the Lord is holding out the key that will release you from your incarceration to a lack of appreciation? If you are not thankful, at least be honest about it. Then, be humble and ask God to break you out! What are you waiting for? See you on the outside. It’s amazing out here!
