Gratitude can change your life.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; Philippians 4:6
“Your attitude is the aroma of your heart” Coach Grant Taylor from the movie Facing the Giants spoke to the Eagles football team in regards to their defeated attitude. Negativity and complaining come from an ungrateful attitude. When we focus on our bad circumstances it results in griping and complaining. We have all found ourselves there. It is a constant battle for our minds. Like Peter stepping out on the Sea of Galilee to walk on the water toward Jesus. As long as he kept his eyes on Jesus, he had firm footing. But when he took his eyes off Jesus and looked at the storm, Peter sank. Giving thanks puts our eyes on the Lord. Gratitude opens our hearts and lives to receive from God an overcoming attitude. Gratefulness can transform our circumstances from problems to possibilities. Transformation begins with renewing our minds in the Word of God (Romans 12:1-2) and choosing to give thanks to God in the midst of our circumstances. What is your problem? Give thanks to God for He promises to be with you in it. We can complain about many things in life but that takes us down a destructive path. But when we give thanks, life flows into us and through us. Choose an attitude transformation, give thanks.
