Wednesday Matters
Everyday Thank You

How many crabby days should you have in a row before you think you need to make a change?  How about on Day One? Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters.  Oh I get you, I know it is hard when life is hard but try this: For every one thing going wrong in your life, there are ten things going right. Don’t think about your problems. Don’t talk about your problems. Don’t exaggerate your problems and then look at Philippians 2:14 “Do all things without complaining.”

Try thinking and talking obsessively about your blessings. Take a few minutes to rapid fire each blessing that comes to mind or make a written list of your top 10 or 20 blessings and then hold that list in your hand and rapid fire say what you’re thankful for out loud.  If you take this first step, you’ll start to feel joyful and hopeful.  This earth experience is hard. It’s not our home but there is always something to be thankful for. Stay focused on what is true. You are enough and many are thankful for who you are…everyday.
