With SO MUCH going on in our world today (Covid-19, Protests, Riots, Destruction, Words, Turmoil, Actions and Deeds) one could find themselves really down and out. Some have hit "rock bottom" and others have become very distanced and depressed.
Life STINKS and Life can be TOUGH - - - but does it really - - - - maybe it is about our prespective.
That new prespective on life starts within ourselves and we must never give up !
...and that is why........I CHOOSE TO START EACH DAY WITH A GRATEFUL HEART.
My new prespective came alive last Sunday - Fathers Day 2020. While sitting under the teachings of My pastor Chris Ryan who shared:
Galatians 6:9 - - Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
So many days we feel like we do the same thing over and over with no results but God has not forgotten us!
IT IS OUR DUE SEASON !!
So while I wait on my "DUE SEASON", I choose to begin each day with GRATITUDE.
Gratitude is the quality of being THANKFUL.
Gratitude for what is right at our fingertips.
Gratitude makes us appreciate the value of someone or something.
Gratitude promotes optimisim and helps us to develop a more positive outlook.
Gratitutde allows us to pause for a moment to reflect on what we have in our life instead of always striving for more.
Gratitude helps us recover quicker from stress, adversity and trauma when life throws you a curve.
Is this easy to do?? - - - - - ABSOLUTELY NOT !!
Ephesisans 5:20 - always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Gratitude is something you must wake up "on purpose" to do! Life can be full of surprises if we change our way of thinking and look for those little moments that gives us happiness and an inner peace!
Being thankful helps us step out of the way of feeling like "I must do this on my own" but actually thanking God for all things HE has done and turn our cares over to HIM. Don't look at all the NEGATIVITY going on in our world today - but focus on the positive and remember GOD is the ONLY ONE really in total control !
Today I was reminded of "It's Due Season" and I am ready for that new season!
Those things and/or people that you thought once was lost may come back to you better and stronger than ever before.
Those times you have poured your heart and soul into .......your due season is coming.
New things are on the horizon for those who wait!
In the meantime - - - Become the BEST YOU - - - - YOU CAN BE !
We can't do life alone - find a pastor who speaks LIFE into you.
(You might say - what does this have to do with HVAC - absolutely NOTHING - but we are human ! ~Have a blessed day. ~Cherie
