TODAY BEFORE I START TO COMPLAIN, I WILL REMEMBER TO BE THANKFUL FATHER
I woke up this morning not by a alarm clock, but by the painful coughs that plagued me all night long. Boy did I feel awful. Regardless of the way I was feeling, I still had to get the kids off, I still had to do errands and I still had work to do for my blog. Father give me strength!
Even though all of these negative things were starting to weigh heavy on my spirit, I was still THANKFUL. I stopped and took a moment to say a prayer and remember all the good things that were going on. OK so this was not a easy realization for me today, BUT I still found my way to sit and pray. Yes PRAYER is one of my favorite things to do...
Before I started to complain, I took a moment to say THANK YOU FATHER for my life. Its OK to have a moment. Just a small moment. But then you have to shake it off and focus on the good. THANK YOU FATHER FOR GIVING ME THE STRENGTH I NEEDED THIS MORNING.
Sometimes we get so caught up in what is WRONG in our lives that we don't STOP to say THANK YOU for all of the wonderful things that are happening right in front of our eyes. You see it! It only takes a moment to focus....I am so glad I did not fall into that trap and waste my day complaining.
Let's face it, We have been in that position from time to time. Today is a new day and I refuse to waste it complaining! How about you?I pray that God will continue to REMIND me when I FORGET. AND even though my circumstances sometimes temporarily blind me from seeing the goodness of your love Father, I will never stop praising your name.
So Even though things are not EXACTLY the way you wanted this morning, God is always there to remind you of your blessings. So focus this morning on thanking God for all that he has done and all that he will do for you. He is ALWAYS worthy of our praise. Smile and be happy in all circumstances and I will talk with you soon. Until then, I will be praying for you.
I would love to hear from you here at the blog. Send me an email, or leave a message in the comment section.
