It is amazing to me what a thankful heart can bring you through. Waking up and literally saying thank you for what you have is a great thing. Of course we can all be wish for more. But to have a warm clean house, with a roof, running water, food in the fridge (even if sometimes the choices are wack- at least we have choices), having love, and electricity are life. So many people take these things for granted.
Other countries are literally living with the bare minimums and we take basic things for granted. Comparing ourselves to others and comparing ourselves to what others have. God has ordered our steps and we must live and walk in them and be thankful for what we have, so that we can get more.
There was a time when I was so spoiled on life, that I was not even close to being thankful for what God has given me. When you lose nouns, it will make you think again about what is important. For awhile, I was so focused on things that did not matter in the grand scheme of things, but not with God's life lessons and help. I am willingly listening to him and trying my best to walk his path laid for me and not trying to do my own thing. Why not try something different? Do what I want has not gotten me where I want to be yet, so now I'm walking in God's path for me. I am willingly thankful daily, not I must walk his chosen path, all the while being thankful.
