“So much has been given to me, I have not time to ponder over that which has been denied.”
– Helen Keller
How many times do we count our misfortunes rather than our blessings? When we take time to open our eyes to the miracle of life the Lord has blessed us with, we can see the many gifts that have been given to us. Remembering all the beautiful aspects of life and all the reasons you are blessed can immediately shift our mood. We can move from sorrow and despair to appreciation and hope.
I confess, I get so aggravated at myself sometimes for all the complaining I do. Believe me, I have no reason to complain.
Challenge: Each time you find yourself complaining about something, re-direct your focus to something you are grateful for. Make a habit of transforming your awareness of troubles into an awareness of the abundant life the Lord has blessed you with.
1 Thessalonians 5:18, In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
What does God have for you,…just around the corner?
