busy schedule. work. jealousy. family issues. tough circumstances. bad days.
just a few things that get in the way of a grateful heart.
while I could ramble on & on about all of the little not-so-good things in my life, I’m going to choose to be grateful for the life that God has been so gracious to give me! What about you?
it’s the thoughts, words, & attitudes we have during those busy, hectic, and crazy days that really reveal who we are.
am I going to be grateful or hateful?
to be honest, it’s not my natural response to look on the brighter side of things when it seems like I don’t even have time to sit down. when life gets hard, when people get sick, when things get cancelled, we must decide what our response will be.
Instead of wishing your days away, stop & look around at all the things in your life that could be gone in an instant and be grateful for them.
Choose to be content with what you have when it’s easy to simply compare. “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
Decide to praise God for what He has given you & done for you instead of pointing out all of your flaws.
Choose joy over jealousy… choose a smile instead of a smirk… choose laughter instead of lies…
Life can be hard. In those times, call out to God for help. You don’t have to do it on your own. HE will give you the strength you need & He will provide you with the ability to be grateful in all things. You can choose joy because He is Joy. He is able!
You are loved
