Gratitude Nurtures the Soul

Good Morning my friends

“If people would concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation then they would discover that their life will be enriched which then leads to gratitude which is a feeling that ultimately nurtures the soul”
Learning to be still in the Light of God’s Presence while He communicates Love to you is a difficult task. Let’s face it….being still and waiting is difficult because we want instant gratification. We complain about the trials but never give credit for the smooth seas. There is something good that comes from every situation but it’s up to you to find it. Once you discover this little secret your life will be filled with gratefulness. You will approach life with an attitude of gratitude.. There is no force in the universe as powerful as God’s Love. We all have limitations but there is no limit to God’s Love. It fills all of space, time and eternity. We see things through a dark glass but someday we will see God face to Face. For now, the knowledge of His Loving Presence is sufficient to carry you through each day.
Our society would be a much better place if everyone had an attitude of gratitude. Instead we focus on the negative or we allow our problems or bad experiences in life to steal our joy.. I’ve been burned so many times this year by “friends” and ex employees that I feel like a crouton. There are times it makes me want to never to be generous, caring or sympathetic towards anyone ever again but instead I refuse to allow those bad apples to steal my joy and keep me from being generous. I see a lot of people return bad for bad. They respond with hatefulness and turn their back on people when they’re down & out. I completely understand not wanting to get burned and protecting yourself from it happening again but don’t punish an peach because you got a hold of a bad apple. You can love the bad apple from a distance and respond to them that way. When it’s time to cut times with the apple you will know. As a follower of Christ, we need to look at society and life and recognize the Love & Blessings that God is bestowing upon on us. Don’t look at them in a negative or dark way but instead accept & embrace as God’s love.

“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
(1 Corinthians 13:12)

My CHALLENGE prayer for you…. Find the good…

I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day… Blessings & much love….D

Live your life like it’s your LAST 24!!
