It's all about ATTITUDE.

I've been thinking lately about how hard life has gotten. I know, I know pity-party city. OK. Enough of that!

The Bible instructs us to give thanks in EVERYTHING. (1Thes 5:18) That means ALL things. Even when things are not going the way I think they should there is a reason to give thanks. I need to find the reason to give thanks even if it is just that I am still breathing.

Think about it. I am still breathing. If I weren't breathing, I wouldn't be alive. Most of us still want to be alive even if we are going through something terrible. So there is reason to be thankful.

As I heard preached recently, I need to focus on what is left in my possession NOT what I think I want or need. We won't even get into coveting!

Thank you Jesus for my health, my sanity;), my family, a roof over my head, a car to drive, food on my table, and friends like you.

Funny that you should post on this. God's been drilling this very idea of being thankful in ALL things home to me in a real way recently. I think He's trying to tell us something, my!

Praise God, we are alive and all to His glory!



You said it sister! :o) Amen
