A little bit of gratefulness can go a long way in adjusting our attitude. If we thank God for everything, even the difficult things we are experiencing, we can find peace and joy.
Challenge: Practice thanking Him several times throughout your day.
Thank Him for waking up
Thank Him for your family
Thank Him for the trees, flowers and birds or any other creature you see
When He helps you get through a meeting, say thank you
When you get safely back home- thank Him
When there is a traffic jam and you are late for work- thank Him even then….you never know what He might be shielding you from down the road
You get the picture. Once you start being mindful of being grateful for everything- it will come more natural and can change your attitude and outlook.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:18
