Today, I am practicing being grateful. Am I happy about what is happening in the world? A global pandemic with millions unemployed and now news of food shortages are the headlines. But I choose to praise because my God is in charge. He’s bigger than the pandemic and He will supply all of my needs.
I have expressed my gratitude today, first to God without whom I am nothing. Then, I thanked the teachers who are working hard daily to educate students who cannot go to school because of the virus but who need to finish up their studies for the year. And finally, I expressed my debt of gratitude to nurses. Do you have a teacher in your life to thank? Then, don’t wait. Thank them! Do you have a nurse in your life who has done something to make you feel hope for the future? Then, thank them! And of course, you need to thank our Heavenly Father for all that He has done and is doing. Even now, He is moving on our behalf. I know that He keeps me calm each day as I face another day in my chair, looking out my window. He sends the birds to entertain me and the flowers to amaze me. He is the Lord and there is none other! Bless His Name and be thankful for each breath that you take!
Have a blessed and thankful day, my friends!
