Have you stopped to give thanks today? What, you don’t feel thankful because your day did not start out the way you envisioned it? Or, you feel there is nothing in your life worth giving thanks? Let me just say this: giving thanks is the best way to overcome your doubts, refreshing your spirit and renewing your mind.
Instead of walking around thinking negatively or worrying because things are not going your way, say a word of thanks. I find that when I’m facing a difficult situation or crisis, getting down on my knees and thanking the Lord for my situation helps me to put it on the back burner of my mind. It doesn’t go away, but I no longer make it the center of attention.
So, take a moment to show your gratefulness in times of trouble. You won’t regret it.Deborah A. Mitchell
