Start With Gratitude

When you find yourself spending too much time in worry and fear it is time to change your perspective.  Nothing else will change for you in your life if you don’t start by assessing yourself.  Look around your life and assess where you are from a basic needs point of view…take note of things or people you may be or may have been taking for granted and be thankful for them.  Instead of starting each day with negativity of “now what?” or “what is going to go wrong next?”…change your thought process.  “I am so thankful for this person” or “I am grateful I have food” and eventually you will notice a change in attitude.  Try it for 30 days…see what happens and take time to pray about it.  God provides everything we need not everything we want or think we need.  May God’s peace be with you.

“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.  Know that the Lord is God.  It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.  For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;  his faithfulness continues through all generations.”

Psalm 100
