With the surgery and hospital stay later this week, I wanted to make sure that this week’s challenge could be accomplished no matter where I am at or what I am doing.
Express Thanksgiving – Spend time everyday recognizing and giving thanks to God for His countless blessings.
When I say, “give thanks” I mean to be sincerely thankful, not just lip service. There are so many things that I should be thankful for, from the small to the big. This is something that can be done throughout each day no matter where one might be or what they might be doing.
I am still trying to focus on the positive instead of the negative, which does not come natural for me. Too many times I let the negative control my thought life, not a good thing. I need to stop murmuring and complaining and start focusing on all of the blessings and being thankful.
God has so richly and deeply blessed me in so many different ways. I need to start focusing on the countless blessing of God.
I challenge you to look around you each day, even if the day is not going in the direction you prefer, I bet you can still find blessings.
P.S. As promised, pictured above is the drawing I completed this past week. I call it “Hippie-Doodle Peace on Earth”.
