Maybe you went to bed last night thinking about all your overdue bills, the lack of finances, the difficult people and situations you have to deal with. Yet, you woke up this morning. Did you give thanks? Perhaps your back is out again, your blood pressure is on the rise, your head is clogged and temples are pounding. Did you give thanks? You’re in so much pain, experiencing fear, your anxiety is to the roof and you are just uncomfortable. But, did you give thanks? Could it be you’re alone, heartbroken, confused or disappointed, yet the same issue remains, did you give thanks?
Are you sitting there saying “I don’t know what to do?” I understand you may be going through some things right now, but if you really think about it differently, you will see that you have the ability to think, to feel and you are alive. You have a brain, a life and even a few ideas on how you may be able to turn things around. This all means that some way, and some day you can and will do better. So…the question still remains, did you give thanks? Well, if you didn’t either you forgot or you just aren’t aware that when the praise goes up the blessings come down. Hoping this inspires you to give thanks.
