It is easy for me to forget to be thankful. I forget that I am blessed and can take things for granted. When I get into these ruts I find that I begin to compare myself to others and focus on what I do not have.
I found that the cure for this rut is to learn to live with a thankful heart each day.
I want to be thankful for what I do have. I am thankful for salvation from hell. I am thankful for the eyesight I have left. I am thankful for having a place to live. I am thankful to have the ability to write.
I must also learn to be thankful through the hard times because those times bring me closer to God and that is something to be thankful for. This song by Nichole Nordeman explains it well.
I hope this is an encouragement for you today.
Text is in the center there are flowers on the top left and bottom right corners. The text says
Flowers dance for joy / Clothed in the brightest sunlight / With great gratitude
This is a Haiku I wrote a while ago and it reminds me to live with a thankful heart. You can find more of my poetry here.
Remember to live with a thankful heart. What are you thankful for today.
