We Spend So Much Time Worrying

Sometimes we spend so much time worrying about all the things that seem to be going wrong in our lives and in the process we forget to take the time to give thanks for the many things that are going right in our lives. We have so many things to be thankful for and yet we choose to spend much of our time dwelling on the negative. We focus so much on the challenges that life has thrown our way and don’t pay any attention to the many blessings.

It is important for us to get into the habit of being thankful for every situation in our lives. We must cultivate a thankful spirit through all the good and bad times. We must remember that all the trials and tribulations that we may be facing are just a test of our faith. Without thankfulness in our hearts we will live in perpetual spiritual defeat. A thankful heart is the key to having peace of mind.

Just the fact that we were able to wake up this morning in good health is in it self a reason to celebrate and give thanks for this miracle. So many people would have loved to have lived to see this day, but they didn’t. So many people are lying helpless in the hospital and would give anything to be able to take your place today. So just remember to take the time out of your busy schedule to be thankful for the many blessings that your life is constantly being showered with from day to day, no matter how big or small they may seem.
