It's Important To Give Thanks
Monday, March 08, 2010
I was reminded yesterday that it's always important to give thanks, especially giving thanks to God. We keep dwelling on the negatives and forget to give thanks for all the things that are going great in our lives.
As the Pastor put it, when your left leg is bothering you, thank God for the right leg which is fine. When we get into this kind of mind set, the things that are not going so well in our lives start to look quite small as we focus on everything else that is good. And I'm sure you will all agree with me that it is much more fulfilling to have a conversation with a positive person than to listen to those negative, energy-sapping people who always seem to be have a pitty party over one thing or another.
So here goes: Dear Lord, I know my running is kind of on hold for the time being, but Father, I am so glad that I am able to walk every single day. Thank you for good health, for the good sense to take control of my life and my body, which is the temple of Your Holy Spirit, for SparkPeople, for my Spark friends and for my legs.
Thank You Lord!
