Candace Cameron Bure recently took to Instagram to encourage her 5.5 million followers to partake in a “gratitude challenge,” according to Christian Headlines. After sharing that scrolling through social media showed her the sad state of the world, Bure motivated her followers to “live a life of gratitude.” For Bure, who is open about her strong Christian faith, shared that faith is what brings her the most gratitude.
In her Instagram story, Bure told her followers “I am grateful for God, Lord Jesus Christ, who’s in control of all of it. I’m grateful that He’s already given all of us and me the ability to be justified before Him and be sanctified throughout the process of my life and that He redeems it all at the end.” Bure shared that thinking about what she is grateful for helps her get through and process difficult circumstances.
After previously sharing an emotional message following the devastating tragedies that have impacted families across America, Bure reminded her followers to hold on to their faith. She also explained to her followers that people deal with intense emotions differently, and taking time to think and grieve instead of immediately taking to social media is what works for her.
Giving her followers an authentic message of hope, Bure continues to be a light in the world reminding people of God’s love. Holding tight to faith knowing that God is with us, Bure suggests, is something we can always be grateful for and turn to in times of stress. Leaving her followers with a way to fill their hearts with love and hope, Bure’s challenge is one that can help people find peace and strength through faith.
