I've learned a really good lesson this week...

Be thankful for the things you have and don't worry about the rest.

I have so many reasons to be thankful and honestly, I don't have one reason in the world not to praise God for everything in my life. I think we all do. And I think a big key to getting through this life is only focusing on the things that do enrich our lives. Don't give power to the negative. It can so easily be done and when you do that, you let the parts of your life that maybe aren't the best become very important. And I'm sure that satan loves that!

There are some days that maybe you just need a hug from someone important to you, or a kind word. There can even be the smile from a stranger. Take it, embrace it, and know that you are loved.

Don't look at what hurts you and makes you angry and let it have any sort of place in your life. If you do, are allowing those things and feelings to become more important than the blessings that God gives us all. Y'all they're so numerous...we all have so much to be thankful for, and if you have problems thinking of something...start with the fact that God gave you this day to look for many ways in which He has blessed your life. If you find yourself in a pit, be thankful for the very fact that God has given you a way out.

That's it...that's all...just been on my mind.

You are so right and man, it's such a great feeling to focus on all the blessings yet WHY is it so hard to stay there?!?

I really needed to read this today-now I just wish it would really sink in!!!! I am normally a pretty optimistic and positive person, but I have had a hard time being there lately, and have allowed too many negative thoughts to take over. I certainly don't like that, and it is unusual for me. I know that God has blessed me beyond my wildest imagination, and hopefully he will continue to use me for His glory.

Blessings, friend~
