There is a sentences I often find myself thinking. It is that spark I need to lift me up. Keep that attitude of gratitude.
Attitude of gratitude: making it a habit to express thankfulness and appreciation, on a regular basis, for both the big and small things in life.
Sometimes it may seem like being grateful is almost impossible. Yet the truth is, no matter your situation, you do have something to be grateful for. How in the world can I find gratitude in the two stories I’ve been sharing that I’ve had to endure? (1* – 2*) One is that I’m grateful my two ordeals went by much more positive than others who have had to go through trials similar to mine. The main reason, however, is what I have glued to my heart: God knows what He’s doing.
As our heart and mind go through health or relationship trials, we have to believe that God knows what He’s doing. He’s never failed us before. His ways are higher than our ways. His love and goodness will endure. The timing of it all is perfect. Keeping these thoughts can sure help us going through those ups and downs in life.
So why don’t you right now reflect on how much you have. It may not be all that you want, but remember someone somewhere is dreaming to have what you have. Just role these thoughts. 1- Accept the fact tough times do show up. 2- Know you are not alone. 3- Realize that not every thing is the worst it ever could be.
If you concentrate on what you do have, knowing God knows just what you need, you’ll start to believe you really do have it made.
John 14:1 – Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
