Every situation brings different feelings, when hardship strikes we often have thoughts of what it is we may feel that we need or want but don’t have. We can often fill our minds with thoughts of what our future will be like if our situation doesn’t change. We become consumed with life’s pressures of being successful and having more money than we could dream of. But having to worry about money and what it can buy us can cause us to be ungrateful and unthankful. Then we may find ourselves mumbling and complaining about what we wish we had instead of being Thankful for what we do have, the place we presently are and what God has promised for our future.
Geez Louise Life can be hard, things don’t go as planned, obstacles thrown in our way and the constant chase to be the world’s definition of successful. I’m hear to tell you I agree! Life is hard! Nothing worth having is easy! Know that God has a purpose and plan designed just for you. In order to achieve this, a partnership with Him is necessary! After you have hooked up with God, we expect for God to pour on the blessings in the form of money as soon as possible. Well, sorry to be the hammer that comes down on your head as I speak the truth, God’s promises does not automatically come to pass. I know, shocking right! God requires us to do our part, to stand on His word, Trust Him and pursue the ideas, gifts and talents He has placed within us! So what I am saying here is you have to do some work to get what God has promised you! I know another shocker!
Because we are required to work and do our parts we may experience periods of delay and difficult times. The awesome thing is that God is always there helping us and guiding us to what He has for us! When these times that you have not planned or deemed to be stupid or frustrating comes along, continue to be Thankful! All God has done for you up until this point was not for nothing! And pay attention, God may be teaching you something, revealing things, skills and people that will be important to your next level! God may be increasing you!
Don’t ever take for granted a situation the devil meant to be a tragedy turning around to increase your life! God does His best miracles out of tragic situations! Having an attitude of Thankfulness along with a Thankful heart will cause God to get to you what He promised much more quickly than when you are focusing on what you don’t have! In case you are a person who has been complaining more than being Thankful here are a few tips to get you started to achieving a Thankful heart and attitude.
