Some of you might remember at the beginning of the year, I made the decision to start a gratitude journal.
Well one of the things I realized of recent, as my mind drifted back to my journal, was that it's incredibly challenging for me to be grateful when I'm facing trials or any sort of hardship in my life. It has been weeks...OK a month and a half since I've picked up my journal, actually I'm not entirely sure were it is at the moment. Why is that????? when there is so much to be thankful for even when times get bad.
Our Father in Heaven reminds us that... our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. I am encouraged and I hope you are too, that whatever you are facing at this very moment you are not alone and there is a higher purpose to all we face as daughters/sons of God.
Read Psalm 107
Give thanks to the Lord ! (try making a list of as many things as you are sincerely grateful to God for in 10 minutes, and then pray your thanksgiving aloud, before God).
Love to All.
