Counting our blessings. How do we pull that off
It may be arduous at first—
It is an act of obedience rather than an overflow of joy—
but in the end it opens up space in our heart.
When we choose to focus on what we have been given, rather than linger on what we’re missing,
We will feel happier.
We will feel More content.
We will feel Less agitated.
And when we choose to face our miseries directly
When we find blessings in our distress,
Then something miraculous happens.
We view all of life differently.
We see our circumstances through a lens of faith.
And we are able to declare with confidence that,
even in the worst of circumstances,
God is still good &
there is so much to be thankful for.
