Today I’m grateful for gratitude! I find the longer I do this the more I find to be grateful for. The more I find to be grateful for the happier person I am.
I think that if I practiced this for the rest of my life as a daily act of worship, my whole life would change radically. Now I’m not saying that I will no longer strugglewith Bi-polar disorder or even GAD (General Anxiety Disorder), since these are chemical mishaps in my brain. What I am saying is that I could very well live a much happier and if not happy, grateful life if I decided to make this a daily practice even on my bad days.
That’s the challenge being consistent and doing it no matter how I feel. Looking at what to be grateful for will at the least help to regulate my chemicals some in my mind. The challenge is when you’re not feeling well choosing gratitude in the face of depression.
As the picture above says choosing my thoughts and choosing gratitude to be the forefront could make a radical difference in the way I live my life and the attitude that I have. Not just around myself and other people but my attitude towards God and all that He has done and is capable of doing.
I truly think that an attitude of gratitude would stretch my faith and isn’t that always a good thing? May I encourage you to try it with me? Let’s not just make this a 30 day deal. Let’s practice this in our lives as an act of worship on a daily basis. Then let us see where it takes us. Please comment back to me and let me know the journey God takes you on. I promise to keep you posted past November on the journey God takes me on and in thatway we can be of an encouragement to one another. Isn’t that what the body of Christ is all about anyway?
